A Wrinkle in Time
Adapted in time for the 50th anniversary of the classic novel, A Wrinkle in Time follows Meg, her brother Charles, and schoolmate Calvin on an adventure through the universe. When Meg’s scientist father mysteriously disappears, the three find themselves hopping from planet to planet in hopes of saving him. But, as they meet strange extraterrestrials and confront sinister beings, their rescue mission turns into an endeavor far more consequential.
The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs
Returning from their national tour, the Dallas Children’s Theater players delight the home crowd with a musical interpretation of the popular children’s book The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs. The show opens with Alexander T. Wolf standing trial for aggravated huffing and puffing. He tells his side of the story in hopes of proving his innocence, but pigs run the entire court system, from the judge, The Honorable Prudence Pig, to the prosecutor, Julia. However, a reporter named Lillian Magill seems determined to hear out Al’s story. Once all the evidence is presented, it rests on the audience to determine whether the wolf is as big and bad as the porcine media would have them believe.
