Harris Drama Presents The Penny Dreadfuls
The Harris Drama Department presents their fall show, The Penny Dreadfuls by Ray Sheers. The Penny Dreadfuls are orphans and runaways who spend their nights and days working for the dastardly Professor as pickpockets and thieves. Their stolen goods always ends up at a pawn shop run by the despicable Bethesda Nightsoil and Dorthea Sprockett. The Professor’s partnership with these ladies has been very profitable until Mad Aggie, a former Penny Dreadful now disguised as the town lunatic, vows revenge on the Professor for sending him to jail for ten long years. And revenge was never sweeter! Showtimes are Thursday, October 24 and 25 at 7pm in the Harris cafetorium with $5 general admission tickets.
