The next production by the students of John Edwards High School in Port Edwards is set to be “The Bachelor King,” a farcical take on TV’s “The Bachelor written by Martin A Follose.
The performance is set for November 13 at 7:30 PM at Alexander Auditorium. Tickets are $5 for adults and $4 for senior citizens and children.
“When poor King Evian uses his last dying words (as he falls out the window) to pass royal succession not to greedy Prince Daft but to Yokel, a foolish hillbilly, everyone agrees Yokel needs a wife to help him run the kingdom.
Reminiscent of reality TV’s The Bachelor, his staff brings in eligible young ladies to vie for the new king’s hand, including Agatha Peabody, a high-society matron, Priscilla Tradewells-Ayers-Hollander-Morley, a four-times-married gold digger, Sally Valley, a ditzy cheerleader from L.A., Crushin’ Kanisha, a New York City gangster-type, and Jane Claxton, a true-hearted cowgirl from Texas,” said the website of the Pioneer Drama Service who distributes the play.
Alexander Auditorium is located at 801 Second St. in Port Edwards.
