This year’s production by the Teen Club of the Jefferson City Home Educators is described as a light-hearted drama.

“Cactus Pass” has 30 students in the cast and another 17 on the stage crew. All are between the ages of 13-18. The play is set in Cactus Pass, Ariz.

"We have a wealthy family who happens into this town after their vehicle breaks down," said Director Stephanie Smith. "They don’t know about a feud in town that has gotten to the extremes and divided the town.”

Smith said there is mystery and mayhem, but it’s not a musical, even though there are four musical numbers in the play.

Opening night for “Cactus Pass” is 7 p.m. Friday There will be two shows on Saturday, a matinee at 2 p.m. and an evening performance at 6:30 p.m.. The show will be performed at the Stained Glass Theatre, 830 E. High St.

Since this is not one of the theatre’s regular productions, tickets are not going to be sold through the box office. For tickets, call Kara Stephens at 893-5101 or e-mail karastephens@mchsi.com. Tickets are $5 for all ages.
