Twain’s Tales As Presented By The Drama Club

Actresses Elizabeth Jahns and Jamie Ryder took on full character during the show.

CTA’s High School performers paid 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, and assistant director, Kate Norman, “Twain’s Tales” included 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.” Twain’s Tales was a tremendous performance put into action by phenomenal actors and the stunning directorial sight that brought the collection of tales to life on stage.

“With a cast of only eight students, this show was a challenging undertaking,” shared Holtrop. “Each student had at least four different roles (Some even had seven) and hundreds of lines to memorize. Our CTA drama students took the challenge in stride and audiences were amazed at how well they were able to differentiate the characters and remember all of the lines. I am very proud of how this show all came together!”

The group of eight students were: Violet Sidlauskas, Ashley Shelagowski, Elizabeth Jahns, Willow Sidlauskas, Samantha Harris, Logan Winters, Ruby Tompkins, and Jamie Ryder. The performers presented two hour-and-a-half long shows on Dec. 8th and 9th in the CTA Auditorium with approximately 130 attending.
