Community Theatre's Bedtime Stories

Lubbock Community Theatre's Bedtime Stories (As
Told by Our Dad) (Who Messed Them Up) by Ed Monk.
It's dad's turn to tell his three rambunctious
kids their bedtime stories, but when he gets fuzzy
on the details, the classics get creative: a prince
with a snoring problem spices up The Princess
and The Pea, The Boy Who Cried Wolf cries dinosaur
instead, and Rumpelstiltskin helps turn all that
pesky gold into straw. You may think you know
your fairy tales, but not the way Dad tells them.This
performance is free to the public. Reagor Dykes
Stage on the LHUCA Plaza, 511 Avenue K; 6:30 p.m.
- 8:30 p.m.
