Pecos Bill is coming to the stage in Luther and Wellston. The play about the larger-than-life fictional cowboy and his entourage is part of the BancFirst Tour of the Oklahoma Children’s Theatre.
The Pecos Bill and the Ghost Stampede touring production will be performed at Luther Elementary and Wellston Elementary on May 8. The play, featuring Bill, a young MIssy Cougar-Wildcat, a herd of ghost cattle and the world’s largest prairie dog is described as a “hoot-n-holler legend packed with action and laughs.”
This show was chosen for the touring production because it is educational and entertaining, exposing children to the arts. Cast members interact with the audience during the performance to personalize the student’s experience.
“We’re thrilled Oklahoma Children’s Theatre will make stops in Luther and Wellston,” said Gary Roy, president, BancFirst Luther. “Their plays are entertaining and give children and staff a break from their regular school work to enjoy live theater.”
The BancFirst tour is making appearances in nine other Oklahoma communities this spring. BancFirst has sponsored the program for more than 20 years.
