In preparation for contest, the CHS Theatre Department presents its 2016
One-Act Play "The Secret Affairs of Mildred Wild" on Thursday March 10 at
6:30 pm. The forty minute play will be preceded by an excellent scene from
the Theatre I classes as a "curtain opener."
"Mildred Wild" is a fun romp through a week with Roy and Mildred Wild as
they struggle to get out of a bad financial situation: their candy store is
about to be torn down and they have to relocate. Neither are excited about
leaving, but Mildred particularly has trouble embracing reality. When she
is stressed, she retreats to her "movie fantasy world" where everything
works out for the best. The audience is along for the ride as the Wilds
move back and forth between Hollywood fantasy and real world hardship. The
result is a zany but heart-warming story with lots of memorable characters
rushing in and out of this Wild world.
Admission is $2 for adults, $1 for students. All proceeds go to the Center
UIL Academic Team. The show is rated *PG-mild* for adult situations and
references and mild, story-appropriate language. Audiences 10 and up are
encouraged to attend.
