The Drama Department at Autrey Mill Middle School has put together a comedic gem with its upcoming fall play, “Wooing Wed Widing Hood” by Charlie Lovett.
Under the leadership of Director Amy Creamer, the talented cast and crew of 6th, 7th and 8thgraders have mounted a visually spectacular and fast-paced romp that will be sure to please audiences of all ages.
The play will be performed for the public on Saturday, Nov. 17, at 7 p.m. on the AMMS stage. The school is located at 4110 Old Alabama Road in Johns Creek. Tickets can be purchased at the door or before school the week of Nov. 12. Student tickets cost $5 and adult tickets cost $8. All proceeds go to the after-school drama program.
“Wooing Wed Widing Hood” tells the story of the overworked and ever-patient Little Red (Audrey Hirshberg), the youngest daughter of the Hoods, as she is pursued in marriage by the three Princes of Wychwood Under Ooze (Brennen Blotner, Travis Clark and Evan Penn).
Confusion reigns over the land to the question of which prince should have the right to woo Little Red. Meanwhile Little Red’s family isn’t a bit happy about losing their hardworking, sweet and dutiful daughter. Both families seek answers to their dilemmas and bring in the professionals: the Fairy Godmother (Camille Duvall) and the Evil Queen (Peyton Caulfield). Did we mention there is a Big Bad Wolf and dragon too?
The drama program at AMMS is in its ninth year and boasts of two state titles for its one-act plays “The Audition” and “Dragon of the Winds.” Many of the actors continue their craft at the high school level and beyond.
