June 8 & 29: The Tortoise & The Hare The race is on, in our fractured version of this favorite fable! When a timid tortoise has heard enough bragging from a boastful hare, the stage is set for the competition of a lifetime! Will the turtle come out ahead? Or will the hare learn an important lesson about being a sore loser? Find out in this fast-paced play that features new characters, big laughs, and audience participation!

July 6 & 27: Three gruff goats Join Martha Graham, Ringo and Van Goat Gruff as they head to greener pastures to fulfill their artistic dreams! Will their dreams of fame and fortune come true? Or will their efforts be thwarted by a horrible (or maybe not so horrible) troll? Find out in our exuberant adaptation of this classic tale! Colorful characters, audience participation and a surprise ending that will warm the coldest of hearts highlight this one-of-a-kind theatrical adventure!

August 3 & 17: Rapunzel A rapping narrator, an overbearing enchantress, and a damsel who just wants to let her wig… uh… loose hair bring our fantastically fractured fairy tale to life! Music, song and dance come together in this upbeat yet heartwarming story of growing up…and letting go. Get ready to dance down the aisles with Rapunzel… or RAPunzel… like you’ve never seen her before!

Porkchop Productions, a professional theater company, will present the shows, featuring Stacey Maxwell and Abigail Theakston. They have performed extensively for schools, libraries, youth groups and special events throughout the Southeast, including Dare Days in Manteo, and are dedicated to expanding artistic horizons by providing a professional and interactive theater experience to youth and promoting a lifelong appreciation of the performing arts.
