Fall Play – “Jolly Roger and The Pirate Queen” – Performances 10/21-10/23
Gentleman Roger Goodman has every intention of living his life in a conventional way once he marries the wealthy Sarah Huffington...  that is, until he overhears her telling her girlfriends how boring he is!  The man Sarah really wants to marry is a dashing, daring pirate!  Willing to walk the plank for love, Roger immediately buys a ship, recruits a crew and even hires a pirate tutor, Long John Sliver, to show him the ropes! Meanwhile, Sarah has gone off the deep end, as well.  Knowing she won’t find a pirate unless she becomes one, she makes herself into the Pirate Queen and quickly earns a notorious reputation for raiding ship after ship. Filled with high sea adventures, swashbuckling suspense and laughter along the way!  You’ll go overboard with laughs!

One Act – “The Internet is Distract – Oh Look a Kitten!”
This is a short 30 minute play about a student who only has twenty minutes to finish a paper on The Great Gatsby. The character just needs to check a few facts on the internet first... Unfortunately, the web is a nefariously wacky place where boxing cats, Facebook/Instagram lurkers, and pig-throwing games threaten to take over the character’s schoolwork, or worse. Will s/he finish the paper and escape with their life before the school bell rings? A high-octane comedy that explores the rabbit hole of distraction we all go down every time we go online.
  • SRMS Actors interested in participating in our Jr. Thespian One Act “The Internet is Distract -- Oh Look A Kitten! ” should come to the Drama Room on Wednesday August 18th 3-6pm to do cold reads of the script!
  • Tech Crew interested in participating should stop by the Drama Room for an informational packet and signature form.
  • The cast/crew list will be posted on Friday 8/20.
  • Rehearsals are every Monday until Districts.                        CLICK HERE for the Master Fall Season Schedule
