So Mary had a little lamb. Who hasn't? It's tasty. The only people who have a problem with that are those PETA folks and a couple of vegan kindergartners who run screaming out of the classroom during nursery-rhyme hour. But now things have really gone too far. The Artisan Theatre Center is claiming that Mary Had a School House Band. Look, Mary might like a sweet cut of baby sheep every once in a while, but the woman is no cannibal. Let's hope Artisan's production is about Mary as bandleader, not as voracious consumer of human flesh. Especially since it's an interactive kids' show with music and dancing. Mary runs through September 1 at the Belaire Shopping Plaza, 420 E. Pipeline Road in Hurst. Shows are 4:30 p.m. Mondays and 10:30 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Tickets are $3. Call 817-284-1200.
Fridays, Saturdays, 10 a.m.; Mon., Aug. 28, 4:30 p.m. Starts: Aug. 25. Continues through Sept. 1
