Who doesn’t like a good story? Can Casey make the team win when it’s his turn at the Bat?  When Tubby the Tuba sets out to find a melody all of his own, his journey results in an enchanting musical tale. Tubby joins the circus and striving to be part of an orchestra, he meets many colorful characters. You might meet Harry Potter and enter his wondrous world. Join us as we tell stories musically.
