Children’s Theatre Series Closes with ‘Wiley and the Hairy Man’

hairy man 300BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (12/3/13) - WKU’s Department of Theatre and Dance closes its 2013 season this weekend (Dec. 6-8) with Wiley and the Hairy Man, a show designed to teach children about facing their fears.

Show times are 4 p.m. Friday and 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday in the Lab Theatre of Gordon Wilson Hall on the WKU campus. All tickets are $5 and are available online at wku.showare.com.

Wiley and the Hairy Man has been seen by several thousand people this fall as it toured schools and libraries in south central Kentucky carrying a message about bravery.

“It is a great example of what you can do if you have the courage to overcome your fears and don’t let them paralyze you,” said director Andrew Mertz, a senior from Louisville.

At most locations, WKU students also performed a drama workshop after the show which schools used to help with their arts and humanities curriculum.

The show has been presented at Metcalfe County Intermediate, Greenville Elementary, Cumberland Trace Elementary, North Jackson Elementary, Grayson County Public Library (for Caneyville Elementary), Caverna Elementary, Jody Richards Elementary, Plano Elementary, Logan County Public Library, Hiseville Elementary and Cub Run Elementary.

Cast members are Eric Schmidt, a senior from Powderly; Samya Monem, a junior from Louis-ville; Caleb Pless, a junior from Brentwood, Tenn.; Bo Vaughn, a sophomore from Nashville, Tenn.; Megan Gibbs, a freshman from Bowling Green; Kirsten Kellersberger, a sophomore from Salvisa; and Austin Brannin, a freshman from Louisville.
