Coming Soon: ‘Alice in America-Land’

Posted on November 8, 2021

The high school branch of the Tiger Theatre troupe opens their season with ‘Alice in America-Land’, a lively 1990’s themed interpretation of the much-adored Lewis Carroll classic. In our version, written by Dennis Snee, Alice journeys through the picture tube of her family’s television, which has been left on MTV, and meets a colorful collection of characters. Though she enjoys herself at first, Alice quickly begins to realize that this new world is as confusing as it is intriguing. Just when it seems as though the world of America-Land will drive her as mad as its inhabitants, she awakens, safe at home. A fanciful, biting, always funny tale of Alice that will delight audiences in its contemporary form.

Performances will be on Friday and Saturday, November 19 and 20 at 7:00 PM in the Smithville Elementary Cafetorium. Tickets are $5 and should be purchased in advance at: https://spicket.events/smithville

Coming Soon: ‘Chamber Music’

Posted on November 4, 2021

The junior high branch of the Tiger Theatre troupe is sure to impress with their premiere performance on Thursday, November 11th at 6:00 PM in the SJHS Cafetorium.

The play, ‘Chamber Music’ by Arthur Kopit, concerns eight famous women from different historical periods who are all being held in the same insane asylum. The women are — or at least believe they are — author Gertrude Stein, martyr Joan of Arc, activist Susan B. Anthony, singer Constanze Mozart (wife of the famed composer), pilot Amelia Earhart, silent-film actress Pearl White, and explorer Osa Johnson. At a planning meeting set to discuss the interests of women of the asylum, they instead speculate about an impending attack they think is soon to come from the men’s ward. It’s believed that ‘Chamber Music’ was written in order to point out the unjust treatment of women throughout history.

Tickets are $5 and should be purchased in advance at: https://spicket.events/smithville
