WELDON, N.C. – The Children's Theater Series at Halifax Community College (HCC) featured the Virginia Repertory Theatre, formally known as Theatre IV, in a performance of "Tales as Tall as the Sky" on Nov. 18 at The Centre.

The Virginia Repertory Theatre's performance By Cliff Todd was designed to encourage interest in books and reading, Tales as Tall as the Sky is the story of three children in their tree house at the end of the summer, complaining that they have nothing exciting to do. When one produces a book of American tall tales, they begin to explore the wild and adventurous stories of Pecos Bill, John Henry, and Hurricane Hallie, bringing to vibrant life this exciting literary genre.
