InterAct Story Theatre is returning to Silver Spring with a whole new season of family entertainment. First in the line-up this September: The Legend of Pufferfish Pat: A Tall Tale for Mad Times. And you have a chance to win tickets to see it! In fact, I have four Family 4-Packs of tickets to give away to KFDC readers.
So, what’s a cowpoke to do when you’re so mad you could bust a gut? And how do you wrangle those angry feelings before you blow up? Those are the questions at the heart of The Legend of Pufferfish Pat: A Tall Tale for Mad Times, with a rootin’ tootin’ cowboy tale for kids about anger management.
In this production we meet Pufferfish Pat, a legendary cowboy hero who can outride, outrope, and outrun just about anything — except his own hair-trigger temper! When Pat gets angry, he blows up like a Pufferfish, which gets him a nickname he hates and bad reputation he doesn’t want. He wants to be a friend to everyone and stay cool as a cucumber…he just doesn’t know how! And with the little town of Gravy Gulch heating up for the annual Great Gravy Cookoff and Fashion Festival, it’s more important than ever that Pat keep his cool! Where can he go to find folks who might understand or help him with this ornery problem? And what happens when black hat cowboy One-Eyed Jack rolls back into town, looking to get Pat run out of town for good? Will Pat be able to get a hold of his mean temper in time, or is it adios, Gravy Gulch?
The play is performed by three actors appearing as many different characters in and around the dusty town of Gravy Gulch, with help from the whole audience, who get to become the cowpokes and townsfolk of Gravy Gulch right from where you sit!
The Legend of Pufferfish Pat: A Tall Tale for Mad Times runs September 8-23 at Montgomery College Cultural Arts Center in Silver Spring. Tickets are $12.50/ages 12 and up, $10/ages 4-11, and children under 3 are free. Of course, you can also try to win them though the giveaway below!
