It’s that time of year again for JHS’s annual fall play. This year a talented group of students will be performing Cramalot, directed by Frau Guthrie and Señorita James. The show is based on the legendary Camelot but with a twist. It follows King Arthur, a high school student, on his quest for academic excellence. Cramalot is an exciting, romantic, funny, and ultimately hopeful story waiting to unfold before an audience. All are invited to join Arthur’s quest as he recruits a band of honors students to find the holy grail, a diploma and acceptance to an Ivy League university. Students and teachers alike can relate to the hilarious antics of Arthur and his knights. The story finds Arthur amongst a group of unmotivated students struggling to keep up their grades. With the help of the Lady of the Lake and Excalibur, Arthur leads his knights on their journey. They help a mama’s boy become his own person, a conflicted athlete find a balance between school and sport, and an honors student find motivation to stay on track. Arthur also learns some lessons himself along the way. Graduation is fast approaching: will King Arthur receive his diploma on time? Will his knights be college and career ready? Find out December 1st, 2nd, and 3rd at 7:00 P.M. in the JHS auditorium.
