l-r: Rachel and Molly- Sept. 17, 2010
(Rachel's North Hall '12 and Molly's Gainesville High '04- a house divided!)

And an apology: If this week's newsletter seems a little on the light side, there's a reason. Molly came home from Mississippi for the first time since May. 'Nuff said? I'll have more next week, I promise.

Local Theatre

North Hall High School's Hollow Horse Players present A Thurber Carnival, a play from 1961 based on James Thurber's writings and drawings.

A Thurber Carnival, ultimately, is about Thurber and his sardonic, exasperated look at the world. All of these pieces are written with the utmost precision, and the icy dry comedy running underneath is bracing; this is, to use an oxymoron, a savagely understated piece of work. It's student directed by Courtney Shook. It's being presented at 7:30 PM at the NHHS theatre on Thursday, Sept. 23 and Saturday, Sept. 25. Tickets are $5.00.

And while I was looking for an image to go with this, I came across this wonderful column about Thurber. I just had to share. Enjoy.

Gainesville High School Drama Department. presents All Shook Up at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday (Sept. 21-23) at The Ware House at Gainesville High School. tickets are $5.00.

Built around the songs made famous by Elvis Presley, All Shook Up tells the story of a small town girl with big dreams and the motorcycle- riding stud she falls for. Set in the 1950’s somewhere in the Midwest, Chad, a hip-swiveling, guitar-playing roustabout, is being released from prison. The warden doesn't appreciate a guy like Chad riding into town, playing his music and exciting the local women. But the women aren’t complaining!

All Shook Up will make you believe Elvis Presley is back in the building.

Shaun Hughes, son of N2N's Cheryl Hughes, is playing guitar for the production. See you Thursday night, Shaun!
