Book by Cheryl L. West 
Music & Lyrics by Lamont Dozier and Paris Dozier
Adapted from the book by Matt de la Peña and illustrated by Christian Robinson


Climb aboard the Number 5 bus with young CJ and his force-of-nature Nana as they travel through Nana’s urban Chicago neighborhood in this hip-hoppin’ musical joy ride based off the children’s book of the same name.

When his parents leave him with his Nana for a four day visit, CJ is challenged with new experiences unlike those at home. Meeting unlikely friends and seeing the world through a different lens, CJ learns about the boisterous world that exists outside his bubble.

Based on the book by Matt de la Peña and Christian Robinson, West’s adaptation pulls the hoppin’ music of Lamont Dozier and Paris Dozier into a moving musical.
