Fundraiser for Eagle High School- TONIGHT ONLY

Stage Coach Theatre will be donating all the proceeds to tonight’s (Thursday, December 2nd) performance of “A Christmas Twist” to the Eagle High School Drama Club for their trip to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

The Eagle High Drama department was nominated by the American High School Theatre Festival to perform in Edinburgh, Scotland for an international festival called The Fringe.  The American High School Theatre Festival runs in conjunction with the world-renowned Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the world’s largest performing arts festival- held each August in Edinburgh, Scotland. Top high school theatre programs are nominated by state, regional, and national theatre organizations, as well as university theatre professors, to participate in AHSTF.  Top high school programs are identified based on their most recent bodies of work, awards, community involvement, philosophies, and recommendations.

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is widely acknowledged to be the biggest arts festival in the world.  Every year thousands of performers take to a multitude of stages all over Edinburgh to present shows for every taste. From big names in the world of entertainment to unknown artists looking to build their careers, the festival caters for everyone and includes theatre, comedy, dance, physical theatre, musicals, operas, music, exhibitions and events.

The department will be performing the play “Do Not Go Gentle” by Suzane Zeder at the festival.  A play about mending rifts, uncovering special relationships and making discoveries about oneself and others after piecing together moments of time and fragments of a family member’s life after their death.  This powerful, poignant play explores the wonder of words and the transformative power of art as it offers humor and hope to anyone who is, or has ever been, a grandparent, parent, or a child.
Curtain is 7:30 and reservations are still available at 342.2000.

Join Stage Coach Theatre to premiere “A Christmas Twist” in Boise and the Northwest. Written by the Illegitimate Players, one of whom was Boise’s own Tom Willmorth, this hilarious send up of the traditional Christmas Carol will have you rolling in the aisles.

What Blazing Saddles did to the western, what Young Frankenstein did to the horror movie, what High Anxiety did to Alfred Hitchcock’s oeuvre, this is what A Christmas Twist does to Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol … and the result: hilarity and the funniest Christmas show you’ll see this season. Take the characters from A Christmas Carol, blend in some Oliver Twist andLittle Orphan Annie and mix in current pop culture and let simmer for a show Mel Brooks would love.

Reserve your tickets by calling the box office at 342.2000.
