Waukee Theatre Arts Presents: Brave New World

Waukee High School Theatre Arts is proud to present the literary classic-turned-staged-play Brave New World on October 1 and 2 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, October 4 at 3 p.m. in the Theatre Arts Center at Prairieview School (There will be no Saturday performance).

Aldous Huxley’s famous 1931 dystopian satire presents a futuristic world where mindless happiness is universal, babies are no longer born but decanted from bottles and genetically designed to fit a specific caste system, where human frustrations are eliminated with happiness drugs, and where no real connections exist in a world where everyone belongs to everyone else.

This society is compromised when John, a sensitive man accidentally born and raised by a “civilized” woman in a savage reservation, is introduced to the curious citizens and shown the ways of the new world. His observations and relationships begin to clash with modern ways, and he inevitably questions modern values and his place within the “brave new world that has such people in it.”

Come join the Waukee Theatre Arts program for an eye-opening, educational, and entertaining performance of Brave New World, adapted by David Rogers and presented with special permission from Dramatic Publishing. Performances are Thursday, October 1 and Friday, October 2 at 7 PM and Sunday, October 4 at 3 PM. (There will be no Saturday performance).

Tickets are $6 if purchased in advance online at www.seatyourself.biz/waukeetheatrearts or $7 if purchased at the door.
