COTTONWOOD — Get ready for four performances of hilarity and — sometimes – chaos.

Summit Academy will present “The Anatomy of Comedy” Thursday, April 30, 7 p.m., Friday, May 1, 7 p.m., Saturday, May 2, 4 p.m., and Sunday, May 3, 7 p.m.

Students will present “Law and Order: Fairy Tale Unit,” by Jonathan Rand; scenes from The Pink Panther Strikes Again! By William Gleason; and scenes from The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged).

The performances will be presented in three separate one-acts.

“It can be a little chaotic, but it has also allowed us to have more minimal stage scenes,” said director Kim Frei.

Audiences can expect a few surprises, several costume changes, and many big moments of laughter as students get in character and explore some favorite comedic personalities.

The performances are set for the school, 122 Substation Road, Cottonwood. Concessions will be available.
