Geneseo High School students will bring the animal kingdom to life in their fall play “Born to be Wild.”

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 naive male praying mantis?

The comedy, written by Bryan Starchman, gives voice to animals.

Due to ongoing construction at the high school, the fall play will be staged at the Richmond Hill Barn Theater.

The play will be performed at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27 and Saturday, Oct. 28. Tickets will be available at the door.
