Inherit the Wind_PosterThe Bolton StageLight Theatre is excited to present its Fall production of Inherit the Wind, a classic 1955 play be Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee. Directed by Jeff White, it stars Daniel Moore (a senior) and Donovan Hughes (a junior) as Brady and Drummond, two celebrity lawyers who fight a duel of words in a small Tennessee town, a premise modeled after the infamous Scopes “Monkey” Trial of 1925. Inherit the Wind showcases the dramatic struggle for the soul and the intellect of America, a struggle that is a part of life both across the world and in our corner of it. This thoughtful, dynamic staging of an American theatre classic (also a 1960 film) is not to be missed.

Inherit the Wind is coming to the Bolton StageLight Theatre November 22-26. All seats are $10. Monday, November 25 is the student night: all students ages 5-18 may purchase a ticket for half-price ($5.00). Tickets can be purchased at the door or reserved in advance by calling 901-873-8150 ext. 242. Bolton High School is located at 7323 Brunswick Road, Arlington, Tennessee.

Theatrics abound this week as Arlington High School and Briarcrest Christian High School present their Fall dramatic productions.

AHS’s Mark E. Collins Theatre is staging not one, but two plays back-to-back–the first ever high school production of the comedic thriller Twilight of the Gods (Oct. 23-25), immediately followed by the classic 1940’s tale of murder and mayhem, Arsenic and Old Lace (Oct. 26-28). The Mark E. Collins Theatre is located at 5475 Airline Road, Arlington, TN.  Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for children 12 & under and seniors 55 and older.  The Box Office opens one hour before showtime.  For more details on each production, click on the name of the play.

BCS_Little WomenFor theatre-goers looking for something a little less chilling, Briarcrest Christian High School presents Little Women, October 24-26, featuring local students Zachary Sessions (Mr. March) and Callie Carlson (Beth March).  The Briarcrest Auditorium is located at 6000 Briarcrest Avenue in Memphis. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for students, and Briarcrest students are free.

Curtain time for each production is at 7:00 pm, except Sunday (2:00 pm).
