Ragged Edge announces upcoming season

August 01, 2004

HARRODSBURG - The 2004-'05 season for Ragged Edge Community Theater runs the gamut from comedy to drama, and includes an evening of Irish music and dance as well as a musical. Friday and Saturday performances are at 8 p.m., with Sunday matinee performances at 3 p.m. Ticket prices are $10 for adults, $9 for seniors 60 and up, and $7 for children 12 and older.

Here's a look at RECT's upcoming season:

Sept. 10-12 and 17-19: "Noises Off," by Michael Frayn

"This 'play within a play' contains a hilarious melee of stock characters and situations," says Phyllis Campbell, operations officers for Ragged Edge Community Theater.

Nov. 12-14 and 19-21: "Greetings!" by Tom Dudzick

Says Campbell, "(This is) a comic jewel. The son of a Catholic family brings his Jewish-atheist fiancee home to meet the family on Christmas Eve."

Feb. 11-13 and 18-20: "The Diary of Anne Frank," by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett


The winter drama at RECT looks at the real-life legacy left to us by a spirited Jewish girl, Campbell notes. "This play won the Pulitzer Prize, the Tony Award and virtually every other coveted prize of the theater," she adds.

March 11 and 12: "An Emerald Evening: Irish Music and Dance"

The event features Celtic musicians Ceol Kridhe and the McTeggart Irish Dancers, Campbell says.

May 13-15 and 20-22: "Big River" by William Hauptman and Roger Miller, adapted from the novel by Mark Twain

Campbell calls this selection "pure Americana." "Huck Finn helps friend Jim, a runaway slave, escape down the mighty Mississippi to the mouth of the Ohio," she explains, adding, "Come along on this jaunty journey."

June: Summer Stage - Children and Youth Workshops

"This workshop for children ages 7-14 will focus on the basics of stage performance and having a good time," Campbell says.
