Congratulations to the cast and crew of this year’s UIL One Act Play: Cinderella Waltz!
Thank you to our amazing Tiger Theatre Patrons for their support of our fall show, ‘Chemical Imbalance: A Jekyll & Hyde Play’! With their help, we were able to create an incredible evening of entertainment that we’re excited to share with audiences this weekend. If you haven’t gotten a chance yet, visit https://spicket.events/Smithville to buy your tickets today!
We’re excited to open our ’22-’23 season next week with performances of ‘Chemical Imbalance’’, a darkly comic adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s ‘Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’. In Victorian England, repressed impulses burst their corsets as Dr. Jekyll’s experiments in the nature of evil threaten to reveal the bloody hands beneath the gloves of the British Empire. A fast-paced romp about men and women tightrope walking the line between aristocracy and depravity, and between the twin specters of good and evil. Performances will be held on Friday & Saturday, November 19 & 20 at 7:00 PM in the Smithville Elementary Cafetorium. Tickets are $5 and should be purchased in advance at: https://spicket.events/smithville.
