Texas State presents Charles Pascoe’s Foxtales

Date released: 04/07/04

SAN MARCOS – The Texas State University-San Marcos Department of Theatre and Dance presents Charles Pascoe’s acclaimed children’s play, Foxtales, April 20-21 and 23-25 on the Main Stage in the Theatre Center.

Written and directed by Pascoe, Foxtales follows the adventures of Sonny Fox who wants to find out about the rest of the world. He meets other animals along the way who teach him valuable lessons about the importance of friendship and working together. Each encounter has a moral and each moral is presented in song, drawn freely from the fox fables of Aesop.

The musical play has earned wide critical praise. It has been produced at the International Children’s Festival held at Wolftrap in Fairfax, Va., and Texas State students performed it on a twelve-show tour of Moscow and St. Petersburg, Russia in 1995. Foxtales also won first place in the Festival of Anglophone Theatrical Societies (F.E.A.T.S) last year in Brussels, Belgium.

Foxtales admission prices are $10 for the general public, $5 for students. Shows start at 7:30 p.m. April 20, 21, 23 and 24, with a 2 p.m. showtime April 25. For further information, contact the Texas State Box Office at (512) 245-2204.
