When it’s recommended that nine year-old Jesse be moved to a special education classroom, his Mama is on a mission to find out what is going on with her son. After scouring the Internet for answers and consulting numerous doctors and psychiatrists, the probable diagnosis is Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). Distracted raises the question of how we expect today’s children to not be hyperactive in this hectic, computerized and distracting world where multi-tasking is considered a prerequisite for success.
The Naples Players’ auditions are open to all interested persons, regardless of age, race or experience. All that is required is the desire to be involved in a production and the willingness to commit time and effort to the project. For additional information, call 434-7340, ext. 10.
