HAMMOND – Younger fans of Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre for
the Performing Arts will get an extra treat this month with the Pajamas and Play presentation
of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf.” Scheduled on April 29, the performance will begin at
7 p.m. in the downtown Hammond theatre.
“What if no one believed what you told them, even if it was the truth,” asked Columbia Theatre and Fanfare Director Roy Blackwood. “In this Pajamas and Play presentation, a boy learns an important life lesson about integrity, honesty, and the consequences of ‘crying wolf’ in this musical retelling of a classic tale.”
Blackwood said Pajamas and Play is a feature tailored specially for children and designed to make theater performances especially accessible and appealing to them.
“All children love bedtime stories. That’s what this is – only live,” Blackwood added. “Kids are invited to wear their pajamas, robes and slippers to the 60-minute performance. We even plan to send the kids home with cookies and milk. Parents, all you’ll have to do is tuck them in.”
Tickets for “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” are on sale at the Columbia/Fanfare box office, 220 E. Thomas Street, 985-543-4371. The box office is open Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and one hour prior to Columbia performances.
