CCHS Jet Theatrix plans spring production

CROSSVILLE — CCHS Jet Theatrix Drama Club is pleased to present their Spring 2012 production, "Beware the Jabberwock," by Ron Nicol. The public performances will be at the Palace Theatre on Thursday, March 29, at 7 p.m., Friday, March 30 at 7 p.m., and Saturday, March 31, at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. General admission will be $5. There are also two discounted school matinees on March 30 at 9 a.m. and noon by reservation only. Reservations for school matinees are available by contacting drama director, Angela Robbins, at CCHS. Tickets to all public performances will be available at the door. 

A bit about the show:

Emma and Lucy are lost in Tulgey Wood, a mysterious forest full of weird and wonderful creatures. Trying to find their way home, they encounter boisterous Toves and anxious Raths, receive a warning from the refined and snobbish Borogroves about the deadly Jubjub Bird, and are stalked by the frumious Bandersnatch. Joined by intrepid but hapless knight Percy, they come face to face with the awesome Jabberwock - and then Lucy is bandersnatched! Eventually the Jabberwocks terrible secret is revealed, and the children find out what ‘frumious’ really means.

Suggested by the poem “Jabberwocky”, the play is set in the fantasy world of Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice’ stories. Shortlisted in Scottish and Welsh playwriting competitions, one judge commented “it has the same delightfully confusing dialogue of Carroll’s work and brings back fond memories of reading these stories as a child. Wonderfully cryptic nonsensical moments as well as moments of philosophical clarity made me smile and wonder. This play will go down a treat with children and adults alike.”“Full of nonsensical language, confusion and bewilderment the play is a delight from start to finish...many authors of family plays will put in something for the adults alongside the action that is primarily aimed at children. Ron Nicol has created a piece that will have adults and children laughing along to the same thing, and family entertainment doesn't get much better than that.” - Amateur Stage

This  production of Beware the Jabberwock is appropriate for pre-k through adult.  There is truly something for everyone. The colorful sets, costumes, and characters will delight young audiences, and the clever dialogue will be impress the more mature and discerning audience members. The show is approximately an hour long and is perfect family-friendly entertainment for even the shortest of attention spans. This one is not to be missed!

For more information about this production or other CCHS drama projects, please contact Angela Robbins at CCHS.
