Look for our Spring double feature performances of “Writer’s Block” and “High Noon-ish….or Don’t Mess with My Hair Appointment”.
We are really excited to produce “Writer’s Block”, an original play written by Sean Rooney of Bourbonnais. Sean performed in our first production of “High Noon-ish” in 2010. He is also a published author of a children’s book called “Paddy’s First Day at Hilltop School”. The book was published by Strategic Book Publishing in 2009 and is on sale at Barnes and Noble’s book stores.
Sean is a 23 year old young man with cerebral palsy and a wonderfully creative mind. We are looking forward to seeing his script come alive on stage.
Our second play is “High Noon-ish…or Don’t Mess with My Hair Appointment”. The play is a musical with an original script written by Monica Brigham and music from Plank Road Publishing Co. The “western” style show takes place in the towns of “Dry Gulch” and “Sweet Meadow”. The western “saloons” have dropped an “o” and are now “salons”. Unfortunately, “Dry Gulch” has a water shortage and they look to the unsuspecting citizens of “Sweet Meadow” to solve their problem.
Both shows will be performed on May 1st, 2nd and 3rd at Kankakee HIGH SCHOOL at 1200 Jeffery Street in Kankakee, Illinois, 60901
Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:00 p.m. Sunday’s show begins at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $8 and sold at the door.
