‘The Boy Who Cried Wolf’


The classic fable “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” will make its way to the stage of the Wharton Center’s Pasant Theatre Saturday and Sunday afternoons (Feb. 24 and 25). Praised as “funny, enchanting and visually inventive” by the British Theatre Guide, the show, like the fable, follows a young boy who learns that “nobody believes a liar, even when they’re telling the truth,” Wharton’s website reads.

Sunday’s production will be a Sensory-Friendly Performance, which aims to provide a welcoming environment for those with sensitivities. Accommodations include designated calm and alternate-viewing areas, lower sound and light levels, dim house lights throughout the performance and the removal of strobe effects. Autism specialists and trained volunteers will be on hand, and sensory supports like fidget toys and earplugs will be available.

Additionally, each show will offer free kids’ activities one hour before the start of the performance while supplies last.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the Wharton Center Ticket Office, whartoncenter.com or by calling (517) 432-2000. For more information on the production, visit tutti-frutti.org.uk/shows/the-boy-who-cried-wolf/.
