4/11/2018, 1:13 p.m.
Joliet Central's production of "Jake's Women" is a return to true American comedy.
This hilarious show is the story of Jake, a novelist who is more successful with
fiction that with life, and the marital crisis he faces by daydreaming about the
women in his life. The wildly comic and sometimes moving flashbacks played in his
mind are interrupted by visitations from actual females. Director Joe Hoyt is
excited to provide the opportunity for his talented drama students to produce the
most challenging style of theatre- theatre in the round. "This marks the first time
that a production will be presented with an audience sitting on every side of the
stage, thus providing a unique and compelling performance experience."
The production will take place on April 13th 7:00pm, April 14th 7:00pm, April 15th 3:00pm at Joliet Central High School Auditorium. The House opens 30 minutes prior to show time. Tickets are $10 - Tickets sold at the door
