Chart-topping children’s composer and author Doctor Noize brings lively and inspirational works of musical theatre to the stage that inspire creativity, curiosity and character in young audiences.

  • Our goal at the Children’s Theatre is to present stories that engage our audiences.  We are honored to collaborate with a composer of Cullinan’s experience, imagination, and musical skill directing his talents toward fostering new work for young audiences.

    Judge Luckey Managing Artistic Director, Palo Alto Children's Theatre

Every Doctor Noize recording is a work of musical theatre, and the Doc's become a sought-after musical theatre composer.  Palo Alto Children’s Theatre commissioned a theatrical stage musical The Ballad Of Phineas McBoof based on the first two Doctor Noize albums and books, the Ballad and Return Of Phineas McBoof.  The result -- a stage show about music, purpose and friendship that inspires audiences of all ages to listen more deeply and consider their own musical creativity -- is available in both Full and Junior Versions, and can be performed by adult or kid casts.

The successful run of The Ballad quickly lead to four more stage musical commissions:  A modern reimagining of Sleeping Beauty, adaptations of Doctor Noize's own Grammaropolis and the New York Times bestselling book The Pout-Pout Fish, and East of the Sun, West of the Moon.  Plus, Phineas McBoof Crashes the Symphony — with glowing reviews nationwide — is available for production by ambitious musical theatre and opera houses.  Join the growing list of organizations who commission Doctor Noize for an entirely new show!

  • As my own kids have become increasingly involved in musical theatre productions, I've become more fascinated with bringing my works theatrically to the stage.  It allows me to connect with my past as a teacher and Music Director for shows like Into The Woods.  Musical theatre is a wonderful creative outlet for kids to perform and watch alike, and a delightful medium to write and compose for.  It feels like coming home.
