Celebrating all the roo-tin' tootin' tales of the old west, Oregon Shadow Theatre will capture the imagination of your little ones with Pecos Bill: A Tall Tale at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre March 10 at 2 and 4 p.m.
In the folklore of the American West, Pecos Bill has been called the creator of the Rio Grande, the lasso, the rodeo and the first cowboy songs. The Oregon Shadow Theatre production follows Bill from his childhood (raised by coyotes), through his adventures (fighting mythical beasts, riding a cyclone, falling in love with a woman who rides a catfish), to the inevitable settling of the West.
The loose and lively movements of the shadow figures and visual effects combine with sounds of hammered dulcimer, harmonica and various sound effects devices combine to create a fantastic rendition of Pecos Bill: A Tall Tale.
? Pecos Bill: A Tall Tale is a wild ride that provides wonderful live original music, an exciting tale, and is fun for the whole family. Get your ticket early for only $10. Call the centre box office at 604391-SHOW (7469).
