Douglas drama students present 'Jumpin' Jupiter'


Staff Reports

"Jumpin' Jupiter" is a comedy set in the 1950s about how someone's curiosity leads to mishaps and trouble for the rest of the characters.

The Douglas High School drama department's production is 7 p.m. tonight and Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday in the school's theater.

"We tried to make it authentic to the '50s," said drama teacher Amy Sando. "The students wanted to do something fun and this play is full of quirky characters. It's about how the characters fix the mess."

There are 14 drama class students in the production, under the direction of student Rachel Kiehne.

Sando said "Jumpin' Jupiter" is dedicated to Garrett Coston's mother Leia Denner, who died in the plane crash in Mottsville Meadows on May 9. Garrett is on the light and sound crew for the production.

Performances of 'Jumpin' Jupiter' are 7 p.m. today and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the school.

Cost is $5 for two advance tickets, available from cast members and at the school, and $6 for two at the door. Information, 782-5136.
