CTA presents Twain’s Tales 

CTA Drama Club students rehearse for the upcoming performance.

Creative Technologies Academy High School performers will pay tribute to the famous American storyteller, Mark Twain, in their performance of Twain’s Tales, a play written by David Taylor London. Directed by CTA’s drama teacher Jeremy Holtrop, Twain’s Tales includes five short stories penned by the well-known author including “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County,” “Science vs. Luck,” “The Joke That Made Ed’s Fortune,” “The Belated Russian Passport,” “Is He Living or Is He Dead?” and an excerpt from “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.” 

“Since its inception last year, the CTA drama department has been building to a bigger production like Twain’s Tales, shared Holtrop. “We started with improv shows, then last year we moved to our first full-length play with a comedy/farce called Law and Order: Fairy Tale Unit, and this year the students have risen to the challenge of a full-length play based on classic works of literature. It is amazing to see how much the students have grown!” 

The performance will last an hour and half and features eight performers in grades 9-12. 

Performances will be held on Friday, Dec. 8, and Saturday, Dec. 9, in the Creative Technologies Academy Auditorium at 7:00 p.m. Presale tickets may be purchased in the administration office at 350 Pine Street, Cedar Springs for $3.00. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $5.00.
