About “Maybe, a Mouse”:

When the lights go down on a lonely toy maker’s workshop all of the toys are just starting to wake up for play time, except for one little wind-up mouse named Maybe. While the other toys play, she dreams that one day she might become a real live mouse. Little does she suspect the danger and adventure that await her on her path to mouse-dom. This story of the transformative power of kindness is set to the music of Dvorak, Wagner, Rimsky-Korsakov, Humperdinck, Dukas, and original music by oboist, Joey Salvalaggio.
