Kings Mountain Theatre class presents NC festival entries
By Staff reports
KINGS MOUNTAIN -- The Kings Mountain High School PROPS Advanced Theatre Class will present its 2016 North Carolina Theatre Conference Play Festival entries, "HKFN: The Abbreviated Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Jeff Goode and "The Other Room" by Ariadne Blayde.
The shows will be at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 22, 2:30 p.m. Oct. 23 and 7:30 p.m. Nov. 3 in B.N. Barnes Auditorium on the campus of Kings Mountain High School. Tickets will be $10 for adults, and $8 for senior citizens and Cleveland County Schools Renaissance Silver Card holders. Renaissance Gold Card holders and children 5 and younger get in free.
The first entry is Jeff Goode's "HKFN: The Abbreviated Adventures of Huckleberry Finn." Based on Mark Twain's novel, the show follows the actor who plays Huck as he tries to quit a production of Mark Twain's classic but controversial story. His escape is complicated when the actor who plays Jim decides to run away, as well. They are joined by the Duke and King, who lead their ragtag fugitive theater company into a series of ridiculous misadventures. Through it all, Aunt Polly tries to force them all back into the "real" play.
The second entry is "The Other Room" by Araidne Blayde, which won the VSA Playwright Discovery Award and had its world premiere at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. The play follows Amelia, a brilliant teenage astronomer who happens to have autism. Lily is her classmate who happens to have an interest in astronomy. When a chance encounter after school leads to a growing friendship between them, Amelia's imagination, intelligence and constant struggles to connect with the world are revealed in the form of four characters representing her inner life.
The NCTC High School Play Festival, held to celebrate high school theater in North Carolina, features 16 shows over two days at each of eight regional sites. Each show has 45 minutes to set the stage, perform and clear the stage. After their show, the cast and crew then have an opportunity to hear feedback from professional judges in front of the audience they have just entertained. Two shows are then chosen from each site to advance to the State High School Play Festival in Greensboro, where the performance process is repeated. Again, two shows are chosen to move on and represent the state of North Carolina at the Southeastern Theatre Conference High School Play Festival.
In 2012, Kings Mountain High School won the State Play Festival and represented North Carolina at the Southeastern Theatre Conference Play Festival in Kentucky. Visit the Kings Mountain High School Theatre Department Facebook page for more information.
