Luther Jackson MS Drama – A Night of One Acts

Come out and see Luther Jackson’s Night of One Acts!

Each night will feature two shows: 

  • Nerdicus is a poignant one-act written by a local FCPS teacher and published playwright about a sophomore girl who is trying to grapple with her not “normal” older brother with autism. In the end, she realizes that being different is not necessarily a bad thing.

  • Appropriate Audience Behavior is a hilarious comedy about  how NOT to act while watching a play.

Tickets for only $4 each are available now on LJMS website https://jacksonms.fcps.edu/  or by using this link: CLICK HERE .  

Show times are: Thursday Nov 15th 7:30 pm;   Friday Nov 16th 7:30 pm;  Saturday Nov 17th matinee 2:30 pm (Especially for the elementary school students which will feature a talk back time with the actors); and  Saturday Nov 17th 7:30 pm.

Doors open at 7:00 pm. There will be a short intermission with concessions available. Roses will also be on sale to purchase for cast & crew.
