PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

ANIMAL FARM December 3rd-31st
Jack In The Black Box Theatre Company

A barnyard full of idealistic animals stages a rebellion to throw off their chains of slavery and human oppression, and is faced with the challenges of their hard-won liberty: Who is the leader? Who makes the decisions? The pigs, smartest of the animals, quickly accept the taskÖ What follows is a fascinating lesson in civics and a compelling exploration of the problem of direct democracy.

Dec 3rd-31st, Wednesday through Saturday, 8:00pm, Sunday, 7:00pm at Dadís Garage Top Shelf. $12-$18. For tickets or information visit www.jackintheblackbox.org or call 404.432.9847

Go See Animal Farm
by St. Genesius
Friday, December 9, 2005
4.0
Iíve recently started going to see more local theater this month, and I must say that this has been my favorite one so far. Maybe because I love the storyline, but it was great seeing it brought to life. Unfortunately, I donít know the specific names of the actors, but this was a well cast playÖvery professional, strong actors.

Besides the pigs and horses, the other animals required a bit more imagination from the audience. I didnít immediately figure out what they were until I heard some animal noises.

Although, not a major character in this play, I got excited every time Moses flew to stage. The Sugar Mountain candy song was very catchy. I donít know how well I liked the itty bitty plastic animal scenes because it just looked too fake and too small. I really enjoyed seeing the humans portrayed through puppets. It set a nice barrier between the humans and the animals.

Between the shot gun Mr. Jones and authoritative Napoleon, I felt just as scared in the audience as the other animals on the farm.

This play had a lot of effort put into it, and as an audience member I thank you. I really enjoyed it and plan on telling others to go see it.
