Gaddy-Goodwin Teaching Theatre (General admission)
October 31 - November 16, 2014 

Musical. In Ridgetop, South Carolina, 1906, Mirandy is determined to catch Brother Wind. It's the best bet to win the cake walk, but he eludes all the tricks that her friends advise. This adaptation of a popular children's book is a cultural celebration that is full of lively song and dance.

Director: Linda O’Day Young

“...what Raleigh Little Theatre provides is a fun and thoughtful introduction to musical theatre with a hidden history lesson just simple enough for children to grasp. And it may even help inspire a trip to the local library to check out more books for story-time.” -- Trey Morehouse, CVNC.org
