This excellent one man show explores the often overlooked insidious taunting and teasing that bullies are so adept at inflicting on their victims. Based on Susanne Gervay’s inspiring novel, I am Jack explores the journey of a smart, funny, 11 year old boy. Jack is being bullied at school and it is not long before the emotional pressure begins to build inside him. What starts as an off-the-cuff joke during a handball competition soon turns into a set of circumstances whereby Jack is no longer safe in the school yard? As much as he wants to tell his Mom he can’t, for at home there is conflict of a different kind. Jack’s Mom’s
The work’s charm and humor has succeeded in delighting and informing young audiences. Jack takes us on a touching and sometimes comical journey as he moves from victim to victor. One actor plays eleven characters, moving with ease between each one. I am Jack is based on the true story of author Susanne Gervay’s son, who at the age of 11 experienced being bullied. What is unique about this bullying themed show is that the character of Jack is just a normal, fun kid, not an outsider. The show explores how peer pressure can grow rapidly and intensively and peer pressure can take over.
Tickets are $15 online and $20 at the door
VIP box seats are $125 (seat 4)

Tyler Civic Theatre Center
400 Rose Park Drive
Tyler, TX 75702
(903)-592-0561 Adapted by Bro Herrod.
Here is a hilarious version of the immortal story of the Drunkard-the most famous melodrama ever written and the foundation for the hundreds of melodramas that have followed. Audiences are captivated by this classic as love battles liquor for the life and soul of the upstanding hero, Edward Middleton. On the side of love are sweet, innocent Mary and her ever-loving, ever-whining mamma, Mrs. Wilson. Plying the liquor with dastardly intent are cruel, scheming Lawyer Cribbs and his cringing crony, Stickler. In the end, of course, the hero wins out over demon rum and true love triumphs over all.
Ticket Price: $15.00 - $18.00
This is so interesting-
HISTORY OF THE DRUNKARD
THE DRUNKARD or THE FALLEN SAVED was first presented in 1844 at the Boston Museum, which was anxious to capitalize on the rising popularity of the Temperance Movement. The production met with instant success ~ played for 14U performances and was soon being toured by various troupes.
When Boston audiences began to dwindle, P. T. Barnum latched onto THE DRUNKARD and brought it to
It was soon noted that many of the nightly audience of two thousand would laugh in the wrong places. Worse yet, many males between acts checked out for a fast belt to fortify themselves for the denouement. The women, however, absorbed every nuance of the melodrama and wept and sobbed throughout each performance. Barnum did a slight land-office business on the side by selling handkerchiefs. He finally decided to close THE DRUNKARD when he found the crass Yorkers applauding the villain, encouraging the hero to drink and vilely cursing the reformers.
THE DRUNKARD had regular revivals as the Temperance Movement flowed high and waned low down through the following decades - hitting its second peak in the '90s and was still going strong leading in the Prohibition Era. In 1933 the play was vividly revived in Los Angeles and enjoyed the longest run in the history of legitimate theatre, Playing to packed houses of hissing and booing audiences until it_ finally closed in 1962. In 1964 Bro Herrod decided to have a go with THE DRUNKARD and thought this time around it should be given the full musical treatment. The musical version with music and lyrics by Barry Manilow opened at the 13th Street Theatre in New York and ran continuously for six years. Encouraged by audience approval, Herrod and Manilow experimented with new staging and injected new music , a revised version opened in 1970, which ran another two years
