ALLIANCE HIGH FALL PLAY NOV. 17-18 (Updated with cast/crew)
The Alliance High School Drama Department will present two one-acts, plus one short theatre class play, for the fall theatre production
The Least Offensive Play in the Whole Darn World by Jonathan Rand and I’m Not Ebenezer Scrooge by Tim Kochenderfer will be performed on Saturday, November 17 at 7:00 pm and Sunday, November 18 at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm
The performances will be held at Alliance High School Performing Arts Center.
Admission is $5.00 for adults and $4.00 for students and may be purchased at the door.
The fall play production at Alliance High School will feature two one-act plays, plus one short play project from the theatre class. The theatre class project is about a group of pre-school children who want to take revenge on their pre school teacher for putting them into time-out.
Forty-eight Alliance High School students are involved in the fall productions.
The first one-act, The Least Offensive Play in the Whole Darn World, is a comedy about a product called the ScriptCleaner 5000. The product treats classic scenes from plays that are deemed too offensive to perform at high schools, and magically wipes away any profanity or violence. The result is a hilarious look at how Shakespeare might have been performed without bloodshed, or how a David Mamet play might sound without profanity. The play is a fun, harmless comedy that has been one of the most produced high school short plays in the country for four years, according to the Educational Theatre Association.
Cast: David Beckett, Lauren Block, Morgan Boots, Everett Gerth, Betsy Goodell, Tyna Taylor, Mary Weingart.
‘The feature production, I’m Not Ebenezer Scrooge, involves an all-school cast of AHS students. The famous tale of Ebenezer Scrooge haunts an unsuspecting, slightly dimwitted, modern-day penny pincher in this hilarious spoof of the quintessential Christmas classic. After getting dumped on Christmas Eve, Carter’s holiday goes from bad to worse when the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future mistake him for Scrooge. After being dragged kicking and screaming through the legendary miser’s life, Carter realizes he may share a similar fate.
