WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - THEATREWORKS USA will perform "Click, Clack, Moo" at Purdue University's Loeb Playhouse at 3 p.m. Feb. 24. The performance is presented by Purdue Convocations.

"Cows that type? Hens on strike! Whoever heard of such a thing?" Farmer Brown cries.

When his granddaughter Jenny comes for a visit, Farmer Brown declares the farm a "tech-free zone." He puts her laptop in the cold barn along with the shivering cows who use her computer to type messages requesting blankets. "No way," replies Farmer Brown. "No blankets!" So the cows go on strike, and the chickens join the cows in solidarity. No blankets? No milk and no eggs!

Will Farmer Brown give in to the animals' demands? Will Jenny get her computer back? Find out in a hilariously "mooooo-ving" new musical about negotiation and compromise, based on the Caldecott Honor Book by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children 18 years and younger, Purdue students and Ivy Tech Lafayette students. Tickets are available at the Elliott Hall and Stewart Center box offices at 765-494-3933 or 800-914-SHOW. Tickets are also available through Ticketmaster outlets
