JCN Theatre to present classic play; proceeds benefit humane society
Jefferson County North Theatre has added an early show to its schedule this year. It will present “The Glass Menagerie” by Tennessee Williams at 2 and 7 p.m. Sept. 3 featuring a separate cast for each show.
This is a one-day only opportunity to see this classic play set in the 1930s in St Louis.
All proceeds from the first show will go to the Jefferson County Humane Society, sponsors of a a no-kill animal shelter. The society will offer a peek at potential animal adoptees outside of the high school between shows. Adoption paper will also be available to the public as well.
“We get so much support from our patrons. It is time to give back to our community and organizations in need,” said Abbie Weishaar, a co-president of JCN Thespian Troupe 6178, expressing how the troupe feels about helping a service organization in the county.
Weishaar hopes to have a great turnout to support the show. JCN Theatre currently collects food for the Jefferson County Food Bank each October in the National Thespian food drive—Trick or Treat so Kids can Eat—and hopes to help raise money for other organizations and services in the community in the future.
Students will also be serving a dinner before both shows with proceeds from the dinner helping to send the JCN theater students to the state theater conference.
Directed by Jennifer Morgan-Beuchat, the show was double cast in order to feature more student talent. The stage manager for the show is Abbie Weishaar.
Admission is $2 for students and $5 for adults.
