Drama Club Presents "The Mouse That Roared"

The Mouse That Roared

This oft-performed comedy pits the tiny duchy of Grand Fenwick against the mighty United States when they find their economy and sole export - champagne - threatened by a California knock-off. Duchess Gloriana is the sovereign of this microscopic country in the Alps founded centuries ago by a roving band of English bowmen. Gloriana's unique solution to the near bankruptcy of her tiny domain is to declare war on the U.S.! There's some method to her madness, however, for her study of recent history suggests that the surest way to wealth today is to lose a war with the United States, for that country's odd reaction is to pour aid, relief and rehabilitation on the vanquished. When her "declaration" is considered a prank, Gloriana decides to escalate! Tully Bascomb, presently in charge of the bowmen, is to launch an attack so they can surrender and reap the rewards. Serious-minded Tully, however, upsets all calculations when he and his bowmen do the last thing expected—they win! The ramifiacations of this, however, are set to backfire unless something is done quick! The play's final scenes provide some poigniant and relevent words for today's world.

The play will run November 10 – 12 at 7:00  P.M. in the Butler High School Performing Arts Theater. Tickets are $5 presale and at the door.
