Lees-McRae Summer Theatre for Young Audiences’ A Whale of a Tale to Premiere July 6


The Lees-McRae College Summer Theatre will kick off the month of July with the premiere of A Whale of a Tale Saturday, July 6.

A Whale of a Tale is the creative re-telling of the biblical story of Jonah. The show will kick off on Saturday, July 6 with additional showings July 20, 27, and August 3. All shows begin at 10 a.m. in the Shelton Learning Commons on the campus of Lees-McRae and cost $10.

Composed and written by John Thomas Oaks and Tommy Oaks, the show captures children’s imagination as two actors play all the parts and move with hilarity from a pirate’s saloon to the ocean, to the belly of a fish and back.

Purchase tickets at the Hayes Auditorium box office during regular hours or at the Shelton Learning Commons 30 minutes prior to showtime.
