Rutherford Wolf by Thomas Hischak. This production is a playful satiric comedy adventure performed by youths for youths. It is about a gentle, vegetarian Rutherford, the wolf, who moves out of the woods to escape his allergies and encounters many adventures on his way to the city. Performances are set for 10 a.m. on July 22, 23, 26, 27 and 30; at 7 p.m. on July 25 and at 6 p.m. on Aug. 6.
