Book and Lyrics by Becky Boesen
Music by David von Kampen

Puddin’ has a secret and if she doesn’t do something fast, it may just eat her alive! To make matters worse, her mom is sending her away, she has to start a new school, and soon she’ll be stuck living with her crazy, ex-lounge singing, yoga-loving grandma. Can things get any worse? Or maybe…just maybe, they’re about to get better. Featuring an uplifting score that includes everything rap to soaring Broadway-style melodies, Puddin’ and the Grumble is a family musical that fearlessly tackles childhood hunger in our own community!
