Sing along to the first ever Fiona: The Musical at Ensemble Theatre

She has her own line of t-shirts, a hashtag, numerous viral videos, the national spotlight and a devoted following, so it’s only appropriate that Fiona the Hippo is the subject of a brand new musical!

Everyone’s favorite hippo makes her musical debut in this world premiere November 29- December 29, 2023 at Ensemble Theatre.

Based on the true story of the hippo that captured the world’s heart, this story follows Fiona’s journey from premature baby to larger-than-life heroine! When Fiona is born two months early at only twenty-nine pounds, the odds are stacked against her. But when a determined team of zookeepers and doctors refuses to give up on the little hippo that could, the beautiful friendships that form might be just the thing to give Fiona the strength she needs. From Cincinnati native Zina Camblin and ETC composer David Kisor, this touching story reminds us of the power of perseverance, compassion, and never giving up on the underdogs—or underhippos!
