Theater productions are this weekend
Peabody-Burns High School students will present two one-act plays in Brown Gymnasium this weekend.
At 7 p.m. Saturday, the cast of “Cinderella Wore Combat Boots” takes to the stage in a familiar fairy tale with a modern twist. Cinderella’s stepmother is more silly than mean and Prince Charming is a bashful suitor. And, instead of a glass slipper, this Cinderella does go to the ball in combat boots.
A production at 3 p.m. Sunday was originally a 1940s radio mystery thriller called, “Sorry, Wrong Number.” A neurotic invalid overhears a conversation on the telephone and eventually realizes it is a murder plot.
Advance tickets for $4 are available from the high school office or any cast member. Admission the day of the productions is $5.
