CAST Performing The Boy Who Talked to Whales at Longfellow and Mann
October 17, 2012
The CAST performing arts program will be taking its show on the road next week when it visits Longfellow and Mann elementary schools to perform The Boy Who Talked to Whales for students, parents/guardians and community members.
The play is about Jerry Johnson, who has secretly taught himself to talk to Ooka, a 50-foot whale that fled from whalers into Puget Sound. With the help of Meg, a neighbor girl, he devises a plan to save Ooka from the people who want to hurt whales. More importantly, Jerry and Meg help Ooka combat the foreign whalers. The plan succeeds so well it causes a great international crisis, which the two children help the President of the United States resolve.
The performance at Longfellow will take place on Tuesday, October 23 at 7:30 p.m., while the one at Mann will be held on Friday, October 26 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets, which are $5 for students and $7 for adults, can be purchased via the District 97 webstore and at the front door the night of performance. If Longfellow students bring a "bear necessity ticket" to the performance at their school, they get in for free. Both performances are open to the public.
