Vermillion High School presents ‘Wiley and the Hairy Man’

VHS play

Vermillion High School students put their creativity to work in the production of the magical children’s fantasy, “Wiley and the Hairy Man.” The play is an adaptation of a Southern folk tale in which a child, with the help of a conjuring mammy and faithful dog, outwits the villain of the swamp and, as a result, finds inner strength. With the help of puppetry, lighting effects, and a cast of imaginative actors, the VHS stage is transformed into a swampy adventure land.

Show times were 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 4, 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 5 and 7:30 p.m. tonight,  Monday, May 6. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for students and senior citizens, and free to those with Vermillion School District activity cards. Tickets are available at the door.
