Family Friendly Theatre Returns to Cutting Hall with 'The Barnyard Mystery' on October 14

Poor Mrs. Gray! She has spent hours baking desserts for the church spaghetti dinner, but they keep disappearing one by one. What is she going to do? Who is the thief? Is it the rooster, the chicken, the pig, the cow, or the bumblebee? Could the desserts be in the pig pen, the beehive, the chicken coop, or the barn? Where would you look?

Come join in the fun as Palatine Park District's Family Friendly Theatre presents "The Barnyard Mystery," on Monday, Oct. 14, at Cutting Hall Performing Arts Center. Two performances are offered with the first at 10:30 a.m. and the second at 1p.m. Ticket prices are $6 for regular admission and $5 for groups of ten or more.

"Family Friendly Theatre brings another original play to Cutting Hall Performing Arts Center," said Cultural Arts Coordinator Ashley Schiavone. "Seeing the audience grow and giving local performers the opportunity to interact with their community continues to be a highlight. There is nothing more exciting than seeing kids line up after the show in excitement to meet the characters," she continued. "That connection makes the stories each season truly magical. I can't wait to see 'The Barnyard Mystery' and help solve the mystery of who stole the pasta!"
