☆ SPTG Performance This Weekend – Play the Hand That’s Dealt ☆

playthehandPlay the Hand That’s Dealt
Directed by Corinne Kessler. Garrick Hartley, assistant director.

Friday, July 29th at 8pm
Saturday, July 30th at 8pm

A play selected, directed, acted and produced by Sauk Prairie teens that wanted to do a drama about a school shooting with accompanying discussion to process this horrific situation.

In Play the Hand That’s Dealt by playwright Claudia Haas, a normal Study Hall period turns into a claustrophobic nightmare when ten teenagers find themselves in a Code Red Lockdown with no teacher. Unsure of what dangers lurk outside of their room, the students are forced to face each other and their clashing personalities. No one is left unchanged.

The play will be performed at Park Hall, 307 Polk St. in Sauk City.

Tickets will be available at River Arts on Water, 590 Water St., in Prairie du Sac and at the door. Tickets are $6 for students/seniors and $8 for adults. Tickets will not be available on-line.

Produced with special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.
