The Centennial Knights Players will perform A Knight of One Acts on October 12, 13 and 14 at 7:00 p.m. in the Centennial High School Auditorium. Tickets may be purchased through a cast member or Ms. Howard. Student advance tickets are $5, or $7 at the door. Adults advance tickets are $8, or $10 at the door.
Two acts will be performed: The Long View by Alan Haehnel, a story that explains the repercussions—both long and short—of a single event that lingers in the memories and lives of all the young people who witnessed it. Doubt, A Parable by John Patrick Shanley is a provocative investigation of truths and consequences through the eyes of two nuns and a priest. Both shows question the impact of different perspectives on our own point of view. The content is recommended for children ages 12 and over.
Doubt, A Parable will be Centennial’s entry into the Georgia High School Association Regional One Act Competition that will include six other schools from our area on October 28, 2017 at Johns Creek High School. The Centennial Players will compete around 4:00PM. In the meantime, those interested can follow actor interviews and backstage stories on the Centennial Theatre Instagram page at chstheatre5855.
