The public is invited to enjoy the upcoming, and uplifting, production of “African-American Folk Tales: The Tails of Br’er Rabbit” showing Feb. 14-16 at the College of Southern Maryland’s (CSM) Fine Arts Center (FA Building), Theater. Produced by special arrangement with author and CSM Alumnus Kenneth L. Waters Jr., this comedy portrays what happens when a school teacher asks his students to act out the folktales of Br’er Rabbit.

Some members of the cast from left are Evan Simon, of Clinton, as Br’er Rabbit; Olivia Burgess, of Hughesville, as Br’er Fox; Levi Shaw, of Lexington Park as Br’er Bear; and Christian Price, of Waldorf, as Mr. Eugene Remy.

Through his creative method of storytelling, he divides his class into groups of three and assigns each group a story to act out and perform – with hilarious results.
