Theater Performance: “Tales of Br’er Rabbit”
Saturday & Sunday, Apr. 4 & 5
12:30, 1:30 & 2:30 p.m.
Magical Moonshine Theatre brings the traditional African American tales of Br’er Rabbit to life with humor, large table-top puppets, a live banjo and singing! Br’er Rabbit may be small, but he has his wits. That doesn’t keep him out of trouble, but does tend to get him out of it, once he gets into it. When he comes up against the likes of Br’er Fox and Br’er Bear, it turns out they are no match for the clever rabbit. Tickets are $2 for nonmembers in addition to park admission, and $1 for members.
