'Peter and the Wolf' comes to Anchorage
"Peter and the Wolf" is a symphonic fairy tale come to life, and it is now in Anchorage. The Producing Artistic Director with Pushcart Players, Paul Whelihan, joined KTVA's Daybreak to discuss "Peter and the Wolf".
"It is based on a Russian folktale and it's about a young boy, Peter, who every summer goes to visit his grandfather in the country, and grandfather lives near a forest where there is lurking danger of a wolf," said Whelihan of the story behind "Peter and the Wolf."
"The grandfather constantly warns Peter to stay safe, stay close to home. For the most part, Peter does, until he forgets and then he goes out and plays. This story takes place on the last day of summer and Peter does, in fact, encounter the dreaded wolf, so the play is about how Peter and his forest friends resolve that".
You can catch "Peter and the Wolf" on Saturday, April 21, at 2 p.m. at the Discovery Theater.
Tickets are available between $12 and $27
