Imagination Stage’s  ‘Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed: the Rock Experience’ Runs Through January 8

Per Imagination Stage: Imagination Stage™, the metro DC region’s largest professional theatre for children, continues the run of its hit rock musical Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed: the Rock Experience during the winter holiday week, with many matinees from December 26-December 31. The show is based on Mo Willems’ best-selling 2009 picture book Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed and is best for ages 4+.

To dress or not to dress, that is the question for the naked mole rat colony when clothes suddenly fall from the sky. Through a series of witty, silly, tuneful rock songs–sung and played by a live band–the colony opts for tolerance, letting each mole choose whether to dress or remain unclothed. How do they celebrate? With a naked mole rat fashion how!

Willems has written the script and lyrics, and Deborah Wicks La Puma is composer, and Kathryn Chase Bryer, Imagination Stage’s Associate Artistic Director, directs a cast of versatile professional actor/musicians.

Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed runs through January 8; holiday week matinees are 11:00 and 2:00 on weekdays, and 1:00 and 4:00 on weekends. See the full schedule on our website.  Tickets are $12 – $36 (group rates available) and may be purchased online at or by phone at 301-280-1660.  Members of the media: for more information or to schedule an interview, contact Laurie Levy-Page at 301-280-1642 or [email protected]
