Smart bets: Don’t Count Your Chickens Until They Cry Wolf

Heading into its fourth season of family-friendly theatrics, Asheville Creative Arts presents a musical retelling of Aesop’s fables. Don’t Count Your Chickens Until They Cry Wolf pairs time-honored wisdom with modern wit, clever lyrics, puppetry and audience participation, according to an event release. “This production retells all the classics with an injection of humor,” says ACA co-founder and producing director Abby Felder. Set under a circus tent with live music, the show highlights the creative energies of bandmates and resident artists Brenda Lee Gambill and Gina Jones Stewart, with the latter serving as director. Performances are at The Magnetic Theatre on Friday, March 4, at 7 p.m.; Saturday, March 5, at 1 and 4 p.m.; and Sunday, March 6, at 1 p.m. $23 adults/$12 children and groups. Discounted matinee performances for schools, including preshow study guide, run March 2-4. Cast photo courtesy of ACA
