Fall Theatre Production – CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF

Set in the Mississippi Delta plantation home of Big Daddy Pollitt, Tennessee Williams’ Cat on a Hot Tin Roof examines the relationships among members of Big Daddy's family. Brick, an alcoholic ex-football player, drinks his days away and resists the affections of his wife, Maggie “the Cat”. His reunion with his father, Big Daddy, who is dying of cancer, jogs a host of memories and revelations for both father and son. The Pulitzer Prize drama features several recurring motifs, such as social mores, greed, superficiality, deception, decay, sexual desire, repression, and death.

DAYTIME SCHOOL PERFORMANCE

Spring Theatre Production - THE ADDAMS FAMILY

9:30 a.m.

Center for the Arts, Theatre

 

The weird and wonderful family comes to devilishly delightful life in THE ADDAMS FAMILY. This magnificently macabre musical comedy features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. A man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before — keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents. Come meet the family.  We’ll leave the lights off for you.
