Weatherford College will present “Little Red and The Hoods” Sept. 28-29 in the Alkek Fine Arts Center.
This children’s production is part of the college’s annual children’s touring theatre troupe arranged by Joe Nicikowski who also directs the show.
Show times are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Saturday. Doors open a half hour prior to show time, and admission is free.
“Little Red and The Hoods” by Karen Boettcher-Tate is a new take on the old classic with heavy audience participation during the show and a dose of modern lessons for today’s children.
As the story goes, of course, Little Red is taking cookies to her grandmother when she encounters Harry Wolf. Harry works for the notorious gang leader, Ma Sugar Lump, and wants to steal the recipe for the cookies. The pack of meanies can then bake more cookies, sell them to others and become rich. Fortunately, their plot fails.
This play teaches its young audiences about not judging people by their looks, how to protect themselves from strangers and the importance of reading. With plenty of participation, this show is both fun and educational at the same time.

Events for the 150th celebration have been a work in progress for more than a year thanks to the collaborative efforts of a committee of faculty, staff, students, alumni, and community partners spearheaded by Katie Edwards, WC’s director of creative and graphic services.
“I have been looking forward to preparing for WC’s 150th-anniversary celebration for the past 10 years, and it has been exciting and overwhelming in equal turn,” Edwards said. “It has been an amazing experience to work with members of the community, alumni, faculty, and staff across WC’s campuses to celebrate and mark this once-in-a-lifetime event.”
Other upcoming sesquicentennial events include the Spring Student WC Birthday Party on Jan. 28, WC Basketball Reunion and Family Night on Feb. 16, and the Coyote Family Picnic on March 23. Visit WC150.com for more information on these and the many other events scheduled for 2019.

Free

Weatherford College’s Alkek Fine Arts Center will host the production “26 Pebbles” at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 26.

Written by Eric Ulloa, the play centers a town hall meeting in Newtown, Connecticut, six months after the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012.

“But it’s not about the death of 20 young children and six adults,” said director Nancy McVean. “Rather, it’s a story of love and hope and community and how the world responded to this tragedy.”

Admission to the play is free, but donations are welcome and will benefit the Crossroads Youth Program in Weatherford. The play lasts approximately 90 minutes and is hosted by the WC Young Democrats Club.

The cast consists of WC staff member Julie Moeller; WC alumni Rebo Hill and Damek Salazar; and community members Craig Atherton, Clara Chestnut, and Lana Robinson. McVean is a retired WC theatre instructor and long-time supporter of the Young Democrats campus club.
