PINE BLUFF, Ark. – Since the renaissance of The John McLinn Ross Players back in 2008, Pine Bluff has seen the fine theatre work going on in the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff--but only on campus.
Now, the John McLinn Ross Players have finally crossed over to Main Street, if only briefly. The JMRP’s February production, The Talking Eggs, has been offered to area school groups, not just at UAPB, but also at the Arts and Science Center of Southeast Arkansas as well because both groups are committed to engaging closely with young people.
The Talking Eggs is an old Creole folktale and variation on the Cinderella story, originally commissioned for The Discovery Children's Theatre at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC. Written by UAPB’s Director of Theatre, Cheryl Collins, The Talking Eggs is a quintessential children’s show which reminds us to keep our word even when things aren’t what they appear to be.
