UC Jr. High Drama Club to Present School Play
By Brad Hoggatt, RESC Correspondent
The Union City Junior High Drama Club, made up of students in grades 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th, will present a two act comedy on Wednesday, October 3 beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the Randolph Eastern Performing Arts Center. Brian Taylor’s “Dr. Evil and the Basket of Kittens” is sure to delight audiences of all ages.
This darkly funny farce pits the eternal battle of pure evil against innocent fuzzy goodness. Dr. Evil wants to destroy the world, but when a basket of kittens arrives on his doorstep, it’s his own world that gets turned upside down. The Council of Evil is set to arrive any minute for the unveiling of the thermal ray — Dr. Evil’s latest weapon of world domination — and he must impress them at all costs. If the Council finds him with this basketful of precious kittens, they may never offer the financial backing he needs to complete his dastardly project. Being truly evil, there is only one solution that Dr. Evil can think of- total kitten annihilation! But with several identical baskets going in and out of his lab and the crazy antics of his assistant’s mummified mother, his own vampire mother and the practical-joke-loving family of hybrid hyena werewolves who live next door, the kittens just may make it out alive. Audience members will likely be rooting for the precious little fur balls the whole way. Or will they be as evil as Dr. Evil himself? One thing is for certain, being bad has never been this much fun!
