Henrico Teen Theatre Company presents The Boy Who Cried Wolf
Wed, July 30-Sat, Aug 2
10am & 2pm – The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen
In this reimagining of Aesop’s tale, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, a bored boy named Roy tends to his family’s flock while the mischievious Pearl, Roy’s pig-tailed crush, belittles his duty and begs to see his “wolf-crying” skills. Predictably, his family responds to the false alarm while Pearl keeps up with her amusing antics….not knowing where the real wolves are lurking! Great fun for the whole family! Free. Reservations are required. Information: 501-5859.
