On Stage Tonight - "Jack the Ripper" and "Bright Ideas"

You have two community theatre shows in Charleston to choose from tonight.

They are:

- Bright Ideas will be presented by the Kanawha Players at the Kanawha Players Theater at 309 Beauregard Street in Charleston tonight and tomorrow at 8 p.m. Tickets are $16 and $10.

Here's the description of the show:
How far would you go for your child? For Genevra and Joshua Bradley, the question is no longer hypothetical. Their three-year-old son, Mac, is next on the waiting list to get into the Bright Ideas Early Childhood Development Academy — and everyone knows once you’re in there, your life will unfold with glorious ease. Josh and Gen have had to scramble all their lives to get this far…and now they are one fatal dinner party away from the ultimate success as parents: The Right Pre-School. You may never look at pre-school — or pesto — the same way again.
- Jack the Ripper will be presented by the Contemporary Youth Arts Company at 8 p.m. tonight and tomorrow at the Capitol Theater at 1234 Summers Street in downtown Charleston. Tickets are $9.50 and $5.50 for students and seniors.

Here's a recap of that show:
With a full cast of more than 30 people, Jack the Ripper whisks the audience back to the Whitechapel District of London, circa 1888 and into the tangled mind of a madman as the world's first notable serial killer begins his reign of terror. Scarpelli and Kehde's Jack the Ripper shows you the man behind the infamous murders from the beginning, and gives the audience a "fly on the wall" insight into his world, as well as the lives of his mother, his victims and those pursuing Jack at any cost.
So get out there and support your local theatre group!
