Jolly Jack Junior

directed by Amie Kirn

featuring Collin Rogers and Gigi Stroncek

Actually yes We did it last Spring. But my director thought it was the best out of our school, and we are actually taking it to ITS state this winter, and performing it there.

From January 8-10th, 23 members of International Thespian Society (Theatre Honors Society) will travel to UMSL to participate in the MO-Thespians State Conference. Selected seniors will audition for Acting, Education, and Theatre for Life Scholarships. Senior Collin Rogers and junior Gigi Stroncek will perform in the One-Act Jolly Jack Junior. Senior Drew Arnett and junior Julie Schnedier will perform and junior Belinda Bing will stage manage in the All-State Production A Midsummer Night's Dream. This conference will allow students to attend workshops presented by theatre professionals and directors, and participate in technical and acting challenges. We wish all of the performers and auditionees luck! Break-a-Leg!!

7th Annual One-Act Play Festival

479 Tandem Lane

Friday & Saturday at 7:00 p.m.
Sunday at 2:00 p.m.

One-Act Play Festival - Next weekend, the Upper School Drama Program will present the 7th Annual festival of one act plays. It will be a diverse collection of irony, parody, insight, raucous humor and zany fun. From modern classic to edgy performance art, these five plays will cover enough of the human landscape to leave our audiences satisfied with a great evening at the theater. The material is absolutely appropriate for high school students and may need a little translation and explanation for younger audience members. Irony, parody and the absurd (which we will serve up) may be lost on a less experienced audience so we're not making a "family audience" recommendation. There have been rumors of faculty members serenading our audience. Come see if this is true. Tickets may be reserved through Louise Cole and ticket prices are $7 for adults and $5 for students and seniors.

Jolly Jack Junior: The Buccaneer's Bairn

Directed by Clinton Johnston

Hey Jeff -

Just wanted to drop you a line to say I'm doing Jolly Jack Junior: The Buccaneer's Bairn for a high school here in Charlottesville. (At least, I will be if Baker's Plays gets off their ass with our rights request.) Anyway, get this ... it's a Friends school, as in The Society of Friends, The Quakers.

Herr Goode -

Ah yes. Sadly enough our little pirates have sunk in the shoals.

Our Captain Jack has missed a total of two weeks of rehearsal owing to pulled wisdom teeth and bronchitis. And now our Jolly Jack Junior will the first couple of days of tech week for said inauguration. We have looked at the ticking clock and what is still left to be done and called it a day, sad to say. Sorry for the disappointment.

Dear Mr. Goode,
I'm writing you because I wish to direct a production of Jolly Jack Junior for a series of one acts at my school (Jacksonville State University). I was wondering about rights, royalties, etc. The show will only be put on once and I doubt we will be charging admission. I am ordering 3 copies of the script from Baker's Plays and was wondering what else needed to be done. Thank you for your time,
Adam Fulmer
