ADD: The Magic Beans--Whittier College's theater group for young audiences--will present "The Bremen Town Musicians," the classic fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm. This inventive production, complete with four smart animals and a band of dim-witted, cowardly robbers, is a tale of what four creatures can do when they put their minds to it.

The trouble starts when the animals get together and run away from their owners. Looking for a place to settle down, they find a small house in the forest, home to the greedy robbers. Once the animals put their heads together, the robbers never know what hit them.

The Magic Beans have proven themselves as endearing performers for classic tales, and their latest performance will continue to delight children and parents.
