The Great Cross-Country Race
or The Hare and the Tortoise

Adapted by Alan Broadhurst
Presented by RLT’s Teens on Stage

Directed by Linda O’Day Young

July 16 – 25, 2010
Gaddy-Goodwin Teaching Theatre

Slow but steady wins the race! In spite of being baffled by the overnight appearance of what appears to be a rock with a leg attached, all of the woodland creatures must decide which events will take place to honor Sports Day. Mr. Sett, a badger, is disturbed that there is not much interest in the Grass Eating Competition, the Tree Climbing Competition or even the Curling in a Ball and Rolling Down a Hill Race. Reynard, the fox, has sprained a paw and can not compete with Mr. Fleet in the Cross Country. None of the other animals want to race the boastful Hare until suddenly the rock with a leg moves. Meet Mr. Sloe, a Tortoise who accepts the challenge. Get a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most celebrated of all competitions, the race between the slow-moving Tortoise and the scatter-brained boastful Hare as the two contestants dash through a world of confusing, foolish and unintelligible humans.
