Students in the Tomball Memorial High School Theatre Arts Department are preparing for their opening production of "The Complete History of America Abridged." This light hearted show is a celebration of American history through the use of satire and over the top jokes. Roxanna Taylor, senior; Ian McMenemy, senior; Donna Litton, senior; Kate Phillips, senior; Brandon Bulls, junior; and Katelyn Ramirez, sophomore, will entertain the audience through a two hour interactive romp that includes confetti, improvisation and much more.
"The Complete History of America Abridged" is the first of six productions to be performed at Tomball Memorial High School.
"We can't wait until we open our season," Roxanna Taylor, theatre department student president, said. "We have had so much fun working on this show. Being able to start the year with a comedy is always great for our school and the community."
Performances of "The Complete History of America Abridged" are scheduled for Sept. 26-28 and Sept. 30 at 7 p.m. at the Tomball Memorial High School Auditorium, located at 19100 Northpointe Ridge Lane. This performance is not appropriate for small children.
The Wildcat Theatre also plans to present "Tales of the Night," which is a collection of stories featuring writers such as Edgar Allan Poe and Don Nigro. "Tales of the Night" will run Oct. 24-26 and Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. at the Tomball Memorial High School Black Box Theatre. Due to frightening content, this production is not appropriate for small children.
Tickets for both shows are $10 each. For more information, contact the Tomball Memorial High School Theatre Arts Department at 281-357-3230, ext. 1170.
