Published on Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Wild & Wooly Big Fat Bull will be performed by a 50-student cast of grades 3-5 from Crestview Elementary Thursday at 7 p.m. at the J. Harley Bonds Center.

Admission is $3 for adults and students are free.

It’s the first production from the newly formed drama program. Teachers Jill Fowler wrote the play and Meghan Ladue provided the musical direction.

The play is performed deep in the jungle where a menagerie of animals is rehearsing for the annual Chorus Competition, the "Jungle Jam." The choir is a competitive clan, who take great pride in their musical ability.

The peacocks, Fiona, Petula, and Penelope, and the monkeys, Charlie, Chester, and Chandler, spend time after school practicing dance steps and singing together.

When Willy the Woolly Mammoth, a loveable, but misunderstood new student attempts to make friends, he ends up making a bad first impression, and earns himself a nasty reputation.

Willy finds an unlikely ally in Fiona the peacock's Mother, Mrs. Plume. Can Willy overcome his reputation as the school bully and find a true friend?

Come to the play Thursday and find out.
