The Congo Cabaret: Hosted by Muley the Mule and Friends - Part 2: "History of the Muley-Verse"

Our last post led us into the beginnings of The Congo Cabaret with a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the show.

This post will take us through the "History of the Muley-verse" display that was in place to greet the guests of the Cabaret.


The whole display.  We featured the display in front of the Food Pantry so people could
be (hopefully) drawn over to see the Muley display, but also see the food in the background.
The hope was that people would see what they are supporting with their ticket purchase
to see "The Congo Cabaret."

Poster for "The Muley and Friends Show", a poster for the "SuperMule and the Cookie Caper" live
stage play.  The second play, "Muley's Talent(less) Revue" isn't displayed here.  SuperMule is
seen in the background.

"Spokesmule of the Century" certificate and an award given to Muley by the Ronald McDonald House.
