realm. The central characters are
King Cole, his daughter, Little Bo
Peep, Tom Tom the Piper's Son, The
Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe and
the Knave.
The plot is woven around the loss
of Bo Peep's sheep and the state of
upheaval which it causes in the king-
dom, when the Knave, who is her
fond admirer, is accused of a part
in the disappearance of the flock.
The Knave faces execution unless
he can return the sheep by dawn and
is about to go to his death when he
asks as his last request to be allowed
to be allowed to play Tom's pipe. At
the first musical note, the sheep come
immediately and all is set right.
Other performances will be given at
1:30 and 3:30 p.m. tomorrow. Tickets
may be purchased at the box office
from 10 to 6 p.m.
