The Hudsonville Christian 8th graders will be presenting the play, Shakespeare Goes to Gravel Gulch by Tim Kelly on March 10 and 11 at 7:00 pm and on March 12 at 2:00 pm in the middle school south gym. Ah, Shakespeare in the… Old West?! The lovely Sunny Day arrives in the small mining town of Gravel Gulch with a troupe of actors determined to bring culture to the locals. Unfortunately, the troupe of actors, headed by the conceited and shady Noble Hart, is enough to make a playwright cry. Sunny Day falls for Texas Ranger Johnny Lasso, who’s hot on the trail of a notorious crook masquerading under the name of Gentleman Dan, whose true identity is unknown. It’s almost as if he was a master of disguise, like… an actor, perhaps? Maybe the show isn’t all that Noble Heart and his cohort, the Duchess, are trying to steal! The troupe’s arrival thrills the townspeople, except Abagail Pettigrew, the richest person in town. She’s harboring a dark secret about her former occupation as Pogo, the Woman Who Can Walk Up and Down Stairs on Her Head. With more would-be outlaws, some stranded performing artists training to be window mannequins and a surprise ending, your audiences will be cheering, booing and holding their sides with laughter in this wild theatrical bonanza!
