A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court


Fall Play: A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court

It’s time for the Fall play again! St. Philip’s Drama Club has announced that this season’s play will be A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, from the story by Mark Twain. This production is about a teenager named Hank who is working as stage crew for a play. He gets knocked out backstage, and dreams he is back in King Arthur’s time period. Hank predicts a solar eclipse and is hailed as a wizard, which gets him into all sorts of trouble. This sounds like a pretty exciting play! It will be directed by Ms. Natalie, and I’m sure she’ll do a great job. The performances are scheduled for 17, 18, and 19. Auditions will be held on September 25. Good luck to all of the auditioners!


Interview with Ms. Natalie

  1. Is this your favorite play? No, it s not my favorite play. I did not like the book when I read it in High school but I have since come to appreciate the story. It’s funny and I think the students will really enjoy it.
  2. When are the show days? November 17,18,and 19
  3. Suggestions for auditioning: Don’t come to the audition unprepared. I don’t always require memorization but I do highly suggest it. You want the director to be able to see you as a character and we can’t do that with your face in the script. I
  4. What were you thinking when you decided to do this play?  I usually like to do plays on literature. This one had a lot of fun characters. Since it’s humorous it’s a nice change from the plays we have done in the past.

Thank you Ms. Natalie, and good luck to all of the auditioners!
