The Little Engine That Could   and its all-adult cast will delight children ages 3 to 10 while entertaining their families in the 14th season of the Hudson Theatre Ensemble Children’s Series Silly on Sixth.  This timeless classic about a little train that uses will and belief in herself to overcome obstacles is wonderful for children and adults alike and has been a major inspiration for many generations of children.  Our funny adaptation includes lots of memorable music and a beautiful dancing doll courtesy of Garden Street School of the Performing Arts!  Featuring our earnest and peppy Little Engine, our warm and engaging Train Conductor, our sweet little girl, our haughty Passenger Train, our Brooklyn Street Smarts Cargo Train, our wise, old Steam Engine, our dancing doll, and our very friendly Southern Belle Birthday train, your child is sure to have a fabulous time and will be singing “I think I can! I think I can!” for a long time to come. 

Please note that our beautiful, child-friendly, ground-floor, air-conditioned theater is completely barrier-free & accessible to persons with disabilities. 

Here’s what our audience says:  “We can’t wait for the next children’s show. Our family has seen every one of them!”  “This was my almost 4 year old’s first exposure to theater and he loved it so much, I was nearly brought to tears. Thank you for putting on such a wonderful interactive show with such a talented kid-friendly cast!  “Knowing you are in Hoboken is such a big boon. It was a thrill to me that my 5-year old loved her first real introduction to theatre!”  “The shows are hysterically funny & the kids really love them. We definitely will be visiting you again!”  “I am once again looking forward to a great time. My daughter LOVES these shows.”  “We go to every Silly on Sixth show and the kids as well as the parents really enjoy them.”
