Now Playing Onstage in Jackson, MS - Week of 2/23/2014 THE RANSOM OF RED CHIEF
Corinth Theatre-Arts Playhouse
2/25-2/28/2014
This adaption of O. Henry's short story, from A. Keith Smith of the Arkansas Arts Center Children's Theatre, is CT-A's traveling school show for the season. The story follows two hapless men trying to make some fast money when they arrive in the small town of Summit, Alabama. They decide to kidnap a local banker's son. But the plan starts to unravel when the three go on a camping trip -- the boy dons the persona of Red Chief and terrorizes the two men so much that they gradually lower their ransom demand as they suffer from Red Chief's playful antics and pranks. And, of course, as with most O. Henry stories, there's a twist you won't see coming. This comedy is an excellent way to teach about irony and exaggeration.

Alone, without her guardian angel, Marisol begins a nightmare journey into this new war zone.
