After months of practicing, Jefferson-Morgan Drama Club will present their rendition of Don’t Drink the Water.

The play is directed by Mr. Moore and features Adam Hobe  as Axel Magee, Abby Ankrom as Susan Hollander, and Sebastian Jellots and Bria Jamison  as Walter and Marion Hollander. Woody Allen wrote the play in 1966 as his first professional play. It was published in 1966, and the play is set around that time period. 

Don’t Drink the Water focuses on a man named Axel Magee who is currently in charge of the U.S. embassy in an unnamed European country while his father is away. Immediately, things begin to go wrong when Walter, Marion, and Susan Hollander are believed to be spies and chased into the embassy. They are trapped in the embassy for quite some time until they figure out a way for them to leave safely.

Showtimes are March 14th and 15th  at 7:00 pm.On March 16th, there will be two showtimes; one will be at 2:00 P.M. and the other will begin at 7:00 P.M.

Student tickets are $5 and adult tickets are $7. The doors will open one hour before the show begins.  A concession stand is available.
