The seventh grade theater students will present the Mark Twain classic “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court” adapted by Tim Kelly. Hank Morgan, a teenager who works on his school’s stage crew, is knocked out by a co-worker and finds he has been transported back to the thrilling days of King Arthur, Queen Guinevere and the Knights and Ladies of the Round Table. When the king’s wicked half-sister plots against Camelot it is up to Hank to overcome the evil plot and find his way back to Hartford, Connecticut.
“Pride and Prejudice,” Jane Austen’s tale of Elizabeth Bennett and Fitzwilliam Darcy, is one of the most beloved stories in British literature. The eighth grade theater students will present an original adaptation featuring Elizabeth as a modern teenager who meets Darcy, the star athlete at their school, and immediately deems him too proud. Darcy, on the other hand, believes Elizabeth to be too judgmental. Add best friends, meddling family members, and a school dance into the mix, and entertainment is sure to ensue.
