Step Into the Mayhem of a Show Gone Wrong in Don't Say [email protected]©83+#!
Posted on 08/03/2022

Macbeth may just be one of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies. But even more famous is the legendary curse that surrounds the renowned “Scottish Play”. Now you can step into the world of theatrical lore as the St. Thomas Aquinas High School Drama Department debuts an original production by alumna writer and director Amy Kate Byrne.

In this lighthearted tale of mishaps, mayhem, and madness, a young man in need of a job finds himself propelled into a chaotic theater company with a cast and crew of unpredictable characters. Before he even has a chance to familiarize himself with the ins and outs of the theater world, an unfortunate accident lands him suddenly in charge of the entire company. Does he have what it takes to pull everyone together and save the show before opening night?

All will be revealed in: Don't Say [email protected]©83+#! September 23, 24, and 25 only! Tickets on sale at
