LITTLE RED HEN
March 19 and 20, 2016
Tickets: $10 for Olney Theatre Center Members; $15 for General Public
“Who’ll help me plant the seed?” asks the plucky red hen as she begins the process that goes into making a loaf of her delicious bread. “Not I,” say the sheep, the cow, the horse, and the pig. But, “a hen’s gotta do what a hen’s gotta do,” and so our crimson heroine perseveres until her work is done. The tricks of the conniving fox and the hen’s common sense create an adventure with a sound moral lesson in this classic, feel good, foot-stompin’ country musical. (Recommended for ages 3 and up)
