YOUTH DRAMA Club members Ethan Gammill, Tom Lardinois and Ezra Manzer rehearse a scene Tuesday afternoon at the Ironwood Memorial Building for their performance of "Once Upon a Wolf."

IRONWOOD - The Youth Drama Club, through the Ironwood Carnegie Library and Historic Ironwood Theatre, is participating in two performances this weekend of "Once Upon a Wolf," a new take on classic fairy-tales.

The performances are Friday at 5:30 p.m. at the Ironwood Memorial Building and Saturday at noon on the small stage at the Gogebic County Fair in Ironwood.

Both performances are free of charge.

According to co-director Mary Hansen, the play features eight different fairy-tales, with four being directed by her, and the remaining stories directed by club member Ethan Puisto.

More than 20 youth are participating in the show.

"It's so fun working with these kids," Hansen said. "They bring something different every time, which is so awesome to see."

The club features students from across the area, and Hansen said any youth is welcome to join.

"We have both big and small parts, so if you don't feel that you are ready, we ease you into it," Hansen said. "The kids have so much fun."

For more information about the performances, call the Historic Ironwood Theatre at 906-932-0618.

"The show is appropriate for all ages, and is about 45-50 minutes long," Hansen said. "We hope lots of people will come out and see the show."
