Our own drama teacher, Mr. Clay Sanderson, is performing in two outstanding valley productions this semester.
King John, one of Shakespeare’s lesser-known plays, is running until October 25 in the Mesa Arts Center. Get tickets here. Mr. Sanderson plays King Philip of France. I saw the dress rehearsal and the production is outstanding. The Southwest Shakespeare production includes lots of swashbuckling action, suspense, and intrigue.
At the other end of the spectrum, plan to see the Phoenix Theatre production of Mary Poppins. The family-oriented musical runs from November 19 to December 28 in the Mainstage Theater at the Phoenix Theatre. Mr. Sanderson plays Mr. Banks. Get information here.
Isn’t it great having a working actor on our faculty, teaching drama to our students!
