A high-energy rock ‘n’ roll parable with a powerful message!

Wilbur and all his fellow naked mole rats have always been, well…naked. Wondering what other possibilities are out there, Wilbur discovers a love for clothing. When word of his new passion turns his community upside down, he proves there’s no need to be just like everyone else. Ages 3+

Crafted from the actual testimonies of Rochester-based Holocaust Survivors, CenterStage Theatre and the Louis S. Wolk Jewish Community Center of Greater Rochester commissioned this new play to put a human face on this important time in history.
