12 Angry Jurors – DramaDons

The Acalanes DramaDons present: 12 Angry Jurors by Reginald Rose, adapted for the stage by Sherman L. Sergel

The defense and the prosecution have rested and the jury is filing into the jury room to decide if a young man is guilty or innocent of murdering his father. What begins as an open and shut case soon becomes a mini-drama of each of the jurors’ prejudices and preconceptions about the trial, the accused, and each other.

12 Angry Jurors runs October 24, 25, 26, and 27 at 7:00 in the Acalanes Little Theatre.

Tickets are $7.00 for Students/Seniors and $12.00 for General Admission, and are available online or at the door.

Much Ado About Nothing – Drama

The Acalanes DramaDons present: Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare

Young lovers Hero and Claudio are to be married in one week. To pass the time, they conspire with Don Pedro to set a “lover’s trap” for Benedick, an arrogant confirmed bachelor, and Beatrice, his favorite sparring partner and former love. Meanwhile, the evil Johanna conspires to break up the wedding by accusing Hero of infidelity. In the end, though, it all turns out to be “much ado about nothing.”

She Kills Monsters – Drama

The Acalanes DramaDons present: She Kills Monsters

A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

She Kills Monsters runs November 1, 2, 3, & 4, at 7:00 in the Acalanes Little Theatre.

Tickets are $7.00 for Students/Seniors and $12.00 for General Admission, and are available online or at the door.

Bye Bye Birdie — Book by Mike Stewart, Music by Charles Strouse, Lyrics by Lee Adams — is set in 1958. The story was inspired by the phenomenon of popular singer Elvis Presley and his draft notice into the Army in 1957. Historical tidbit: The rock star character’s name, “Conrad Birdie,” is word play on the name of Conway Twitty, a rock-and-roll rival of Presley’s.

This annual production is a collaboration of Drama, Instrumental and Choral students who put together a Broadway musical every year.
