Ever wonder why your cat acts like he’s king of the world? Or why flamingos stand on one leg? Have you ever imagined what a spider would have to say to a fly just before devouring him, or what “small talk” sounds like when a cannibalistic female praying mantis goes on a date with a naïve male praying mantis?
All of these questions and more will be answered when you see Born to be Wild, a play performed by County Line High School students and teachers this Friday, October 18, at 7:00 pm in the County Line Auditorium. The show is free to all, and donations will be taken to aid the Drama department at the school.
