Pace Academy, recognized by Atlanta Magazine as one of the city’s Best Schools for the Arts, will present the play Black Comedy Jan. 26 and 27 in the school’s Fine Arts Center.
Black Comedy, a one-act farce by playwright Peter Shaffer, is the story of a struggling artist and his fiancée on the evening they decide to give a dinner party in their London flat. Before the guests arrive, a fuse blows, plunging the flat into darkness. Only the audience can see what is happening, and hilarity ensues as unexpected guests arrive.
The production features a talented cast of Upper School students, led by seniors Colin Barham and Hannah Hoff. Seniors Larisa Bainton, John Carolin, Patrick Corbett and Jakob Gorgens, junior Alex Paré and sophomore Sam Downey round out the cast.
Performances will take place Jan. 26 and 27 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 and may be purchased at the Pace Academy front desk during the week of Jan. 24 or at the door. Pace Academy is located at 966 W. Paces Ferry Road, NW, Atlanta 30327.
More About Pace Academy
Pace Academy seeks to develop the entire child, following the four pillars of academics, service, athletics and the arts. The school's drama department produces plays in a top flight, 600-seat theater, and with 11 arts studios, students learn to enhance their creativity. Pace was one of the first schools to require community service for graduation. The school's stadium is on Riverview Road close to the school campus. A historic building, the Gothic "Castle," built as a private residence in 1932, was Pace's first home and serves today as the administration building. A number of modern additions to "the Castle" give the school a blend of traditional and cutting edge style. Pace is not connected to any denomination but follows the Judeo-Christain tradition and strives for character development.
