Friday To-Do: 'Ferdinand the Bull'

Posted By on Fri, Mar 5, 2010 at 9:24 AM



7 p.m., Children's Theatre, Arkansas Arts Center. $11-$14.

You know Ferdinand. He's the anthropomorphic bon vivant and antisocial layabout who found himself in a gnarly case of mistaken identity. On Friday, the Children's Theatre begins a three-weekend run of the play based on the classic Munro Leaf children's book that introduced the lovable bull to the world at large. Parents, this could be a nice treat for your kid; teachers, this could be a nice way to get out of your classroom for a spell; regular readers, did you know the original story was banned in Spain and burned as propaganda in Nazi Germany for the pacifist overtones? The play continues through March 21, with performances at 7 p.m. Friday, 3 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.
