The Fox Valley Philharmonic Orchestra joins with the Community Players of Naperville in presenting a sequel to Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf: Justin Locke’s courtroom drama for kids, Peter versus the Wolf. During the musical performance, actors portray the characters of: a judge, a district attorney, Peter and the wolf, who finds himself on trial for “Duckicide.” And the kids in the audience get to be the jury that weighs in to determine the wolf’s guilt. In the intermission following the performance, kids get to try their hand playing various orchestral instruments in the Philharmonic’s “Instrumental Petting Zoo.” After the intermission, those individuals who have added their name the signup sheet, will have an opportunity to line up and take turns being the “maestro” for the moment in “Kid’s Get to Conduct the Philharmonic.” While intended to be entertaining, it’s also educational without youngsters realizing they’re having a learning experience.
