of The Sound of Music will be performed July 19, 20
and 21 at the Paramount Theatre in Aurora. Ticket prices range from

Set deep within the mysterious Tombigbee Swamp, this
performance centers around a young fatherless boy, his
conjure-woman Mother, his faithful Hound Dog and the Hairy Man who
haunts Wiley's days and dreams. In an exciting duel of wits, Wiley
learns to rely on his own resources and conquers two villains: the
Hairy Man and his own fear.
This production by Tuesday's Child, an intergenerational drama
group based at Grace Lutheran Church, is done "alley style," with
the audience members close to the stage and the action going on all
around them. Performances take place at Walther Lutheran High
School, Ninth and Chicago, in Melrose Park, on Friday and Saturday,
July 19-20 and 26-27, at 7:30 p.m. Sunday performances on July 21
