NORWICH – The Chenango County Council of the Arts is offering a “Theatre For Young Audiences” series in March and April at the Martin W. Kappel Theater, 27 West Main Street, Norwich. Performances include:
THE FANTASTIC MR. FOX
presented by Cleveland Signstage Theatre
Tuesday, March 20 (Elementary level)
Based on the story by Roald Dahl, “The Fantastic Mr. Fox” is in the same tradition as “The Adventures of Peter Rabbit”, as both tell a garden tale of farmer versus vermin, or vise versa. Due to the tyrannical nature of three local farmers, Boggis, Bunce and Bean, Mr. Fox finds himself unable to feed his wife and their three young fox cubs. Other animals in the area are similarly affected. Just as they are all sure to die of starvation, the ingenious Mr. Fox hatches a remarkable plan that will not only get them food, but take care of those horrible farmers for good! Presented in both American Sign Language and spoken word, a question and answer session follows each production. Study guides available.
