Kicking off Ruston Community Theatre’s production season, “Nana’s Naughty Knickers” is set to begin tonight at the Dixie Center for the Arts.
First time director for Ruston Community Theatre, Allie Bennett, said the play is sure to amuse.
“It’s about an older lady in her eighties, who has a propensity to get in a lot trouble. Her granddaughter is visiting for the summer, and her landlord is constantly looking for a reason to kick her out of her rent controlled apartment,” said Bennett. “And she so happens to run a lingerie shop out of her home. There is a lot of physical shtick, so we want a cast with a lot of energy and a sense of humor. It’s a really fun comedy.”

Teachers have a tough job

in

Last week, I read a news story about a former teacher at a Brooklyn high school who agreed to a $450,000 settlement from the city of New York.
The 52-year-old woman, who had been teaching for seven years when she came to the school, said she was sexually harassed and verbally assaulted by her students.
Students touched her breasts and wrote insults about her on a desk, the teacher claimed, and reporting the behavior to the principal did little to help. The educator said her employer responded to her complaint by calling her a “troublemaker.”
