2021-2022 Performance Schedule

Fall Roadshow: Check, Please.
Directed by Leigh Clapp
Written by Jonathan Rand, Check, Please. is the #1 most-produced high school short play from the last two decades. This one-act play showcases a series of blind dates gone wrong. Featuring zany characters such as a raging kleptomaniac and a mime, each date is a bigger disaster and will make you laugh until you cry.
The approximate run time is 45 minutes. Although the play is rated PG and is open to all ages, the subject matter is recommended for middle school students and older. 
  • Friday, December 10 at 7:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, December 11 at 4:00 p.m.
