The Coastal Bend College theater students kick off their newest play “Bigger Than Life: P.T. Barnum presents American Folk Tales and Legends” Thursday, Nov. 21, at Gertrude R. Jones auditorium at 6 p.m. and will have another performance on Saturday, Nov. 23, at 2 p.m. The production features P.T. Barnum and his traveling pack of legends, featuring Pecos Bill and Annie Oakley among others. The traveling band of misfits appear in a town where Barnum wishes to perform but must first impress the mayor and prove that they are who they say they are. The student actor who plays Barnum addresses the mayor and assures him that his well-worn travelers are in fact the legends he claims them to be.
