‘Ransom of Emily Jane’

The Constantine is presenting “The Ransom of Emily Jane” which is based on the O’ Henry short story “The Ransom of Red Chief.” The play is adapted by Carolyn Lane and directed by Garrett Hartness. When the town gossips learn that rambunctious little Emily Jane Dorset has been kidnapped, they dutifully murmur, “poor little tyke” and then go on to rejoice in the unaccustomed peace and quiet her absence brings. Meanwhile, the “poor little tyke” is having the time of the life terrorizing her mild-mannered, inexperienced kidnappers. Comedy classic is suited for all ages. 7 p.m. at the Constantine Theatre Tickets are $3 in advance and $5 at the door. You can get tickets at Weigants, Tolsons or by calling the Constantine 918-287-1992.
