Come see a summer children's show at The Ivoryton Playhouse, Don't Count Your Chickens Until They Cry Wolf, on August 17 at 11 a.m.
Aesop was never so charming as in Don’t Count Your Chickens Until They Cry Wolf, (Book by Carol Lynn Wright Pearson - Music by J.A.C. Redford ) a tour de force of Aesop’s world. This musical is sing-a-long, play-a-long fun for kids of all ages. Filled with ancient wisdom and today’s wit, clever lyrics and foot-tappin’ melodies, it is an irresistible attraction confected by Carol Lynn Pearson and J.A.C. Redford.
Highlights include: the famous race of tortoise and hare (“You got to keep on keeping on”); a soft-shoe number by the fox (“Flatter them, and you’ll walk away with the cheese”); a rousing peasant dance in the bundle of sticks (“The trick is to stick together”); a chorus line of sheep (“If he’s got fleece but the wrong kind of nose, maybe he’s simply a wolf in sheep’s clothes”). The show is presented by the Ivoryton Playhouse Intern Company.
Tickets are $12 and are available by calling The Playhouse box office at 860-767-7318 or by visiting the website at www.ivorytonplayhouse.org. (Group rates are available by calling the box office for information.)
