Hudson Theatre Ensemble offers ‘The Little Engine That Could’

Hudson Theatre Ensemble’s latest production from their Silly on Sixth Children’s Series is “The Little Engine That Could,” an adaptation with music, song, and dance that will entertain children ages 3 to 10 and their families.
The timeless classic about a little train that uses will and belief in herself to overcome obstacles has been a major inspiration for many generations of children.
