Fall Play Info

Elephant’s Graveyard 

By George Brant



Our fall play has two weekend to attend 11/7-11/9 & 1/14-11/16 All shows start at 7:00pm

 The Front Office, Bookstore, Cast, and Crew will have pre-sale tickets for $5, or it's $7 at the door ($2 discount for seniors 65+ and alumni, children 3 and under are free)

Pre-Show
A Carnival on the patio starting at 6:15 with games, food, face painting, and balloon artist. 
Act One
JO's Big Top which combines human and puppet performances in various circus acts. 
Act Two 
Elephant's Graveyard by George Brant is a scripted retelling of the events which took place in September 1916 in Erwin, TN when Sparks World Famous Show visited and Mary the Elephant killed a performer in front of the town. The subsequent decisions by that town and the circus are a bit grisly, so it may not be appropriate for younger audiences members. It's a powerful piece that the actors have done amazingly well interpreting, and we are very proud to give it voice.

Motto"Act well your part; there all the honor lies."

As its third artistic director, I am indescribably excited to be at my dream job. I am a graduate of the program (1994-1999) and truly wish to live up to its two amazing previous directors.
