Special to the Tribune
The ongoing battle between CHAOS and CONTROL is alive and well on the stage at Glassford Hill Middle School Auditorium with the Bradshaw Mountain Theatrical Troupe's performances of Get Smart.
The play, adapted by Cristopher Sergel from the TV series created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry, stays true to the classic comedic adventures of Maxwell Smart and his beautiful and smart sidekick, Agent 99.
"Watching the kids rehearse the play has brought back so many memories of my childhood and watching Don Adams flawlessly play the inept but ever successful spy," director and drama teacher Jantina Russell said.
The fast-paced show delivers plenty of slap-stick gags that are great for the whole family.
"I wanted to produce a play that started off with big laughs and kept the audience chuckling the whole way. This truly is a show that will put a smile on your face," Russell added.
The production involves over 30 students in the cast and crew that have been rehearsing and preparing since early February. "It's always thrilling to watch the students develop characters and come together as a team to bring a script to life. These kids have worked really hard and I'm excited to share their talent with the community," Russell noted.
Performances are 7 p.m. April 3, 4, 5.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. at 6901 Panther Path, Prescott Valley.
Tickets are $8 general admission, $5 for students/seniors.
