  • Once On This Island - November 10-13

    Hutchison's production of Once On This Island, the musical, runs November 10, 11, and 13, at 7:00 pm and 2:00 pm on November 12.

    Based on the 1985 novel The Peasant Girl by 
    Rosa Guy, it is set in the French Antilles archipelago in the Caribbean Sea. The show includes elements of the Romeo and Juliet story and elements of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale The Little Mermaid. Join us to watch how a peasant girl on a tropical island uses the power of love to bring together people of different social classes.  

  • Pride and Prejudice - February 9-11

    Performed by Hutchison’s upper school girls, Pride and Prejudice runs February 9 and 10 at 7:00 pm and February 11 at 2:00 pm.  

    All of the wit and romance of Jane Austen's classic 1813 novel come to life in this refreshingly fast-paced and engaging adaptation. When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, she is determined not to let her feelings triumph over her own good sense - but the truth turns out to be slipperier than it seems. In a society where subtle snubs and deceit proliferate, is it possible for Elizabeth and Darcy to look beyond his pride and her prejudice? 

    Tickets will be available for reservation by calling 901-507-2460 starting January 29 or you may purchase tickets at the box office one hour prior to the show. 
  • A Thousand Cranes & Hana’s Suitcase - May 4-5

    Hutchison’s theatre department will produce two shows in one sitting for our middle school play. Shows run May 4 and 5 at 7:00 pm and May 6 at 2:00 pm.

    Act One: A Thousand Cranes by Kathryn Schultz Miller is based on the book Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes by Elanor Coerr. This inventive telling of the true story of Sadako, a young girl born in Hiroshima during World War II who is diagnosed with “radiation sickness,” or leukemia, a result of the radiation from the bombing. According to an old Japanese myth that claims if a sick person folds 1,000 paper cranes the gods will grant a wish, so Sadako sets out to fold 1,000 cranes. Unfortunately, she becomes too sick to complete the task but her classmates finish Sadako’s cranes and make a wish of their own. In memory of Sadako, the children create a monument to their friend in Hiroshima Peace Park, inscribed with their common wish: “This is our cry; This is our prayer, Peace in the World.” 

    Act Two: Hana’s Suitcase by Emil Sher is based on the book Hana’s Suitcase by Karen Levine. In March, 2000, a child’s suitcase arrives from Auschwitz at the tiny Holocaust Education Centre in Tokyo. Painted on the side are a name, Hana Brady, 1931, and the word “Waisenkind” (orphan). Spurred on by the children at the Centre, the curator Fumiko Ishioka embarks on a relentless search from Tokyo to Prague to Toronto to uncover the story of Hana and her fate. We see the Centre’s students discover a tale of family love and tragedy; and through their learning about this shameful chapter in history, find a key to tolerance and hope for the future.
