LCT to Stage 2 Shows This Month

Lexington Children’s Theatre will make a stop on the Underground Railroad on Saturday, Sept. 6, presenting “Long Road to Freedom,” by Jan Lucas.

The story celebrates the strength of the human spirit through the childhood friendship between Graceanna, a freed slave, and Mary Catherine, a Quaker girl.

Showtimes are 2 and 4:30 p.m. at the Lyric Theatre. Tickets are $15 for adults, $13 for children, or pay what you can. The show is recommended for ages 8 & up.

Also in September, LCT will have a visit from the world’s meanest teacher with “Miss Nelson is Missing.”

Students in Room 207 are failing their classes – so it’s time for Viola Swamp to strike terror into their hearts, and maybe make them realize that a little learning isn’t such a bad thing.

Showtimes are Sunday, Sept. 14 at 2 p.m.; Saturday, Sept. 20 at 2 and 7 p.m.; and Sunday, Sept. 21 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $18 for adults and $15 for children. The performance will be at the LCT Main Stage at 418 W. Short St.
