A PRODUCTION of 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf' will be performed at Corfe Castle Village Hall later this month.

The show, presented by the children's theatre company tutti frutti, is coming to Dorset as part of the Artsreach autumn programme.

Artsreach is the county's rural touring arts organisation.

"Autumn is here, the trees are bare, the birds fly south, the sheep are flocking, seeking shelter from the wind, and wolf footprints can be seen padded into the hard ground," said an Artsreach spokesman. "Delighting children with imaginative, visual and meaningful story-based theatre for many years, tutti frutti are set to bring their fantastic, distinctive and carefully crafted performance to Dorset this October.

"This beautifully warming, wintery tale brings to life the story of a bother of a boy, a mother and a grand old brass band of a granddad.

"Unable to find delight in what is around him, young Silas seeks adventure, excitement and the thrill of the unknown.

"Inspired by Aesop’s famous fable, this wonderful play has a gifted ensemble of actor musicians who bring to life the delightful characters, including funny sheep and perhaps a scary wolf or two. Expect a story of three long winters, villagers, sheep and the best knitted jumper competition."

The Boy Who Cried Wolf will be shown at Corfe Castle Village Hall on Saturday, October 26.
