In conjunction with the Summer Reading Challenge, Fort Bend County Libraries invites students in grades 1 through 5 to a fun, interactive performance of “The Adventures of the Real Pecos Bill” on Wednesday, July 13, beginning at 2:00 pm, in the Meeting Room at Cinco Ranch Branch Library, located at 2620 Commercial Center Blvd in Katy. The performance will be repeated at 3:00 pm.
Many children are familiar with the tall tales of the lovable cowboy character Pecos Bill and his legendary feats of wonder in the Old West. In this performance, Hope Shiver and David Keepman, from the theater group “Voices from the Past,” will re-enact the tall tales of this fabled cowboy hero. Children in the audience will be invited to help Pecos Bill as he rides a tornado and captures fried-chicken-eating bank robbers. They may even learn a little about American military history in the Texas Wild West!
Because seating is limited, this program is for school-aged children entering grades 1 through 5 ONLY. A free ticket, available one hour prior to the performance, is required for admission.
Made possible by a grant through Young Audiences of Houston, the performance is free and open to the public.
