Tarradiddle returns to Tryon’s Super Saturday March 16

Published 6:14pm Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Ah, Tarradiddle! The mere mention of the Tarradiddle Players sends festival-goers scrambling for tickets at Tryon’s Super Saturday, this year on March 16. And this year, Tarradiddle will be delighting children of all ages with “Brother Rabbit Spinning Free,” to play at the Episcopal Church Parish Hall at 10:45 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

This multicultural production was inspired by people who have made the Carolinas their home, and was written specifically for the Children’s Theatre of Charlotte’s Tarradiddle Players.

Brother Rabbit is the quickest, cleverest, wittiest rabbit there ever was, but Slippery Fox sees him as one thing and one thing only: dinner. Brother Rabbit’s only hope of escape is to distract Slippery Fox with irresistible stories, such as “Martin the Magnificent” from Central America, “The Fisherman Prince” from the Vietnamese, “The Very First Fire” from the Cherokee, and “Lookout Mountain” from the Gullah.
