Bring your blankets and lawn chairs and come see a play in the park for FREE! Presented by Virginia Repertory Theatre, Henrico Recreation & Parks, and Henrico Theatre.

SAT, AUG 14: THE SPRINGS RECREATION CENTER
10am: Town Mouse Country Mouse
2pm: Buffalo Soldier

🐭 Town Mouse Country Mouse (for grades K-5) 🐭
Theatre IV’s production of The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse is based on the age-old fable whose moral – in a nutshell – reminds us that “there’s no place like home.” Your students will love this free-wheeling musical that is sure to have them tapping their toes and giggling.

🎖️ Buffalo Soldier (for all ages) 🎖️
Based on the true story of our nation’s longest-surviving Buffalo Soldier and veteran of the Spanish-American War, this dramatic play with music tells the heroic story of the brave soldiers of the 9th and 10th Cavalries, who served our country well with little of the recognition they deserved. The story of the segregated black troops who served our country is told through the eyes of Jones Morgan, a 109-year-old black Buffalo Soldier who, in 1990, was found living in poverty in Richmond, Virginia.

A Note Regarding Props:
The actors in Buffalo Soldier carry prop rifles. These hand props are replicas of rifles used in the Spanish American War. These prop rifles never have had, and never will have, firing capabilities. They are used in the play as part of an authentic and historical component depicting the lives of the real Buffalo Soldiers.
