THE BOY WHO CRIED DRAGON
SATURDAY, JULY 18 - 2:00pm
Everyone has had it with Travis and his tall tales—his teachers, his schoolmates, even his mom. When Travis is given time off (aka school suspension), the park becomes his school-away-from-school. He has everything he needs: books, calculator, a dragon. Dragon?! How can this notorious fibber get anyone to believe him? Based on the fable The Boy Who Cried Wolf, this story of a boy and his dragon is told with humor… and with a much happier ending.

Three young sisters are left in a forest by their woodcutter father and forced to find their own way in the world. From this fairytale beginning, three resolutions are made — one sister walks one way to find purpose, one the other to find adventure, and the third stays right where she is to create a home. Years later, having circumnavigated the globe and fought vikings, crossed oceans, tamed wilds, and achieved greatness, the three sisters meet again, as women.
