WOLFVILLE, NS – Did you ever wonder how Wolfville got its name?
This and other aspects of Wolfville’s history were explained in a tongue-in-cheek way with four wolf-related stories as part of the 24th annual Fezziwig’s Family Christmas Frolic. This year’s production – ’Twas the Wolf Before Christmas – was presented at Acadia University’s Festival Theatre on Dec. 14 and 15 with performances at 7 p.m. each night and a matinee on Dec. 15.
Directed by Wendy Elliott, the Fezziwig Society’s show featured a cast of approximately 80 performers. This year’s script was written by Wolfville-based writer-actor Ross Chapman and former residents Simon Pawlowski and Gus Webb.
The four musically entwined, wolf-related tales included “Peter and the Wolf” and “Grannie and the Hoods” by Pawlowski; “The Piggs” by Chapman and “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” by Webb.
