Thomas Alan Taylor in A Green RiverPlaywright Aaron Randolph III has, so far as I know, effectively captured the mental workings of a soldier suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder in his new drama A Green River. A representation of the chaotic, haunting thoughts likely experienced by some soldiers with PTSD, his play takes us through the memories of a single soldier – from childhood to falling in love to combat to his return home – while the young man revisits his favorite quiet place along a river. And as if the proceedings in Randolph’s story weren’t enough, he also includes a stunningly moving finale that packs such an emotional punch that I'd be surprised if most, if not all, of Saturday’s audience members for the QC Theatre Workshop production aren’t still reeling from it.

Jessica Sheridan, Mike Schulz, and Thomas Alan Taylor in Private EyesWhat starts as a theatre audition quickly becomes something entirely different in the QC Theatre Workshop’s second production, Private Eyes. And this change from what’s real to what’s … well … something else is something I don’t want to fully describe, because such a shift happened several times – and at very unexpected moments – during Friday's performance, making the evening a bit of an intriguing thrill that repeatedly piqued my curiosity.

Stage to Page to Stage: Author Eileen Boggess Brings Her Junior Theatre Experiences to Life – at Davenport Junior Theatre – in "Mia the Melodramatic," February 18 through 26

Author Eileen Boggess (third from top right), director Jessica Sheridan (bottom left), and Davenport Junior Theatre's Mia the Melodramatic teamThose familiar with Davenport Junior Theatre might find its forthcoming production of Mia the Melodramatic a bit ... well ... familiar. After all, the show concerns a children’s theatre company that finds kids starring in and producing plays for other kids, and even comes complete with its own mascot in the form of an energetic, floppy-shoed clown.

Rest assured: Any similarities between the fictional children’s theatre of Mia the Melodramatic and Davenport Junior Theatre itself are completely intentional.

(left to right, from the top) Tartuffe's Brianne Kinney, James Driscoll, Jessica Sheridan, Kitty Israel, Denise Yoder, Stephanie Moeller, Angetha Rathman, Jeb Makula, and Andy CurtissThere are so many smart line deliveries in the Prenzie Players’ Tartuffe that I could gush over each one here and still not have space for half of them. From Stephanie Moeller’s forceful proclamation “I’m timid!” to Jessica Sheridan’s delightfully wicked warning about being stuck with the unbearable title character “each day ... and night ... for life,” Friday’s performance had me cackling over and over again. I won’t, however, point to any more specific line interpretations, for fear of ruining the element of surprise. A large part of the production’s humor lies in hearing its words delivered in unexpected ways.

Tom Taylor,  Jillian Prefach, Jessica Sheridan, Brad Hauskins, Marc Ciemiewicz, Janos Horvath, and Sunshine Woolison-Ramsey in Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman SmellsBefore November 26, I didn’t know much about Junie B. Jones beyond her being the main character in a popular children’s book series by Barbara Park. With that in mind, I felt I needed to enlist the help of my family’s resident Junie B. expert, eight-year-old Madison, to adequately review the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse’s production of Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells. (Madison is, after all, the show’s target audience, as opposed to this 37-year-old, balding male.) I suspected that if she was pleased with the play, I would be, too.
