Oak Ridge High School theatre students will perform “See How They Run” in the Black Box Theatre.

shtr-7_1_origThe play, originally written by Philip King, is a family-friendly production as a 90-minute, 100 mile-an-hour farce.

“The setting is just a vicarage in England; characters show up, and everything goes wrong,” Curtis says. “A variety of characters show up at the wrong time and there’s mistaken identities and people losing people and everything spirals out of control and goes wrong … the farce is the plot.”

The play is set in the 1940s and has been acclaimed as a brilliant, farcical comedy. Audience members will enjoy the interaction between cast members inside the smaller Black Box venue.

 

The final performance of “See How They Run” will take place Oct. 30 in the Oak Ridge HS Black Box Theatre. Performances begin at at 7:00 p.m.

Johnson, who started his third game for The Woodlands this season, was a key contributor as the No. 8 state-ranked Highlanders (4-1, 3-0) moved into sole possession of first place in District 12-6A. continue reading
