Special to Iredell Free News
Center Stage Alliance is proud to present the first show of its 2022-2023 season, “Fantastic Mr. Fox,” which opens September 29 at Mac Gray Auditorium.
This enchanting Roald Dahl tale about the extraordinary adventures of three nasty farmers and a family of foxes will be brought to the stage by more than 40 cast members made up of both adults and children from this community.
Prepare to be held in suspense as the foxes and their animal friends try to outwit the farmers and survive many close calls!
The show will run for two weekends, September 29 – October 2 and October 6 – 8.
Director Josh Myers and Assistant Director Marsha Angell have brought this classic tale to life with their artistic flair, from costumes and set pieces, to the addition of live music, provided by Third Wheel (Karla Kincaid, Stewart Kincaid and Josh Myers). The audience will surely be impressed with the talent onstage and backstage.
Tickets are $16 online (plus fees) and $20 at the door. Thursday shows (September 29 and October 6) are half-price ($8) for all students at the door.
