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.
