B-H All-School Play Performances Next Week
Britton-Hecla High School will present its all-school play, “Crumpled Classics,” on Thursday and Friday, April 12-13, at 7 p.m. in Amacher Auditorium.
With first year teacher Ms. Collins out sick, a quirky cadre of students take it upon themselves to pull together the school’s annual “Classics on Parade,” acting out famous stories that they studied in their literature class. The students, however, decide to make the stories relevant to today’s audiences, with hilarious results.
The authors are surely rolling over in their graves and Ms. Collins is terrified of losing her job, especially when the principal calls the superintendent in the middle of the show.
Attendees will love the hysterics of these plays-withina-play. Romeo and Juliet set in a fast food place. Frankie Stein trying to assemble the perfect prom date. A second rate theatrical agent becoming the Phantom of the Opera so he can force a good deal. A desperate Shirley Holmes and Joni Watson jump-starting a new detective agency, and a teenage slacker Artie surprising his unimpressed mother with a sword he pulled from a stone. It’s a comedy treat sprinkled with outrageous takes on some very familiar characters.
There is no admission charge for the play.
