Due to demand, college adds second show to May 9 performance

AUGUSTA, GA – Due to overwhelming demand, the College of Education has added a second showing of the May 9 children’s literacy play, “Chicken Little.” Admission is free and registration is open.

Dr. Paulette Harris, founder and director of the Augusta University Literacy Center that organizes the play series, said the 2017-2018 season has been a sellout.

“We’ve had such a phenomenal response to our partnership with Porkchop Productions in staging our annual children’s literacy play series that attendance skyrocketed. We want to reach as many children as possible, so we’re adding second shows to the season,” Harris said.

So, on May 9, join Chicken Little, Henny Penny and the rest of the gang on their adventure to tell the king – and we do mean The King – that they sky is falling. Perilous predicaments, big laughs and an important lesson about following the rules highlight this popular performance at 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. at Maxwell Theater on the Augusta University Summerville campus.

Admission is free for both adults and children, but reservations are required. For more information and to reserve seating, please call the Literacy Center at 706-737-1625.
