Drama Class Play: “Once Upon A Crime”
May 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Written by Colquitz Art/Drama teacher Caroline Mackenzie, this play is a frolicking farce fairy tale on the outside and political allegory between the lines. The play approaches themes such as segregation and discrimination using the threat of former real estate mogul, President Rapunzel (from high in her tower, ruling the land through Skype). She is trying to separate the animals and humans by forming an “animal registry” falsely representing her motives as a way to return peace to Fairy Land.
This play is great for small children but it’s also a thoughtful examination of how the abuse of power threatens tolerance, diversity and inclusion. A must-see!!
