Metcalf Junior High theater students will present “Triple Booked,” an original play written by Metcalf teacher and drama director Steven Orth, at the school April 28-30. The play lovingly pays homage to the ridiculous, feel-good comedies of the 1980s with all of the jean-rolling, big-bangs-sporting, loud-music-chanting fun you remember.
In “Triple Booked,” the seniors at William Shatner High School couldn't be more excited to hold their senior prom at the all-new Enterprise Banquet and Celebration Center. The seniors at Sleepy Shores Estates for Slightly Older Adults couldn't be more excited for their high school reunion. Plus, there are the sixth-graders who are bursting at the seams with excitement for their own celebration for elementary-school graduation.
The only problem is that all three events are booked for the same night in the same place.
Performances are Thursday, April 28 and Friday, April 29, at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, April 30 at 1 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. in the Metcalf Junior High gymnasium, 2250 Diffley Road in Burnsville. Tickets are $7 at the door, but they an be purchased in advance through cast and crew members — or in the Metcalf main office — for $1 off.
In addition, a special dinner theater event will be held on Friday, April 29. For a $25 advance-only ticket, guests will enjoy a buffet dinner courtesy of Casper’s Cherokee of Eagan and a showing of “Before the Prom,” an original one-act comedy written by Burnsville High School junior Sarah Jasa. Dinner theater guests will also receive preferred seating to that night’s performance of “Triple Booked.”
