Prairie High School Drama Class to present: “The Fear Factory” A play written by Pat Cook and published by Pioneer Drama.
Frights for hire? Why not?! Whether it’s showing up as a SWAT team to frighten neighbors into turning off the loud music, scaring a 9-year-old into going to see the doctor or curing someone’s hiccups, Annie’s Fear Factory is ready to serve. She explains, “We are scared every day by the news, insurance ads, and doctors’ reports and so on. Wouldn’t it be nice to be in control of the scare for a change?” But now it’s Annie herself who’s afraid. The lawyer next door, Percy, keeps trying to close the Fear Factory down, and the landlady is talking about selling the building. Throw into this mix two fiancés, a love-struck bus driver, an IRS auditor and a gangster, and you’ve got a frightening — and hysterical — mess!
The PHS drama class has six veteran actors from the senior class along with six underclassmen to round out the cast of this zany production. Our seniors chose this play for their spring production and look forward to presenting it to the community on Tuesday, May 14th, 7:00 p.m. in the Prairie High School Gym. Admission is $3.00 for adults, $2.00 for students and free for children ages ten and under accompanied by an adult.
