“The sky is falling, the sky is falling,” Chicken Little exclaimed.
Many if not all adults can remember their consciousness being molded in one way or another by the old morality story of Chicken Little and her panicked attempts to save her friends from impending doom.
Now it is time for the children of these adults to learn the cautionary tale of Chicken Little, and participate in a theatrical performance.
The Richmond Community Theatre will feature the updated version of the age-old Chicken Little folklore called “Poultry in Motion” at its summer Young People’s Theatre camp.
“Once again it’s time for our summer camp,” Theatre Director Mark Colbenson said. “It was very well received last year, and very successful, and we’re looking to get 22 children involved and have a good time with it.”
He said “Poultry in Motion” is a light-hearted show for the children to hone their skills on.
“It’s just a fun little story about Chicken Little believing the sky is falling,” Colbenson continued. “It should be a great thing to get the children involved with over their summer breaks.”
Sign-ups are set to begin Saturday during the morning movies, and will be at the theatre on East Washington Street in Rockingham until July 11 or until 22 children are signed up.
The camp will take place from 1 to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday from July 20 through 31. Two performances of the show will be featured at the theatre on Aug. 1.
The cost of the two week camp is $85. Included in this price is four tickets for the families of the children to attend the Aug. 1 performances.
Anyone with questions concerning the camp may contact Colbenson at the theatre by calling (910) 997-3765.
