Allied Campuses Theatre proudly present PICNIC play at Robert E. Lee, an unique and unforgettable book written by William Inge.
- Picnic distinctly describes the 1950s as one of the influential turning points in the American society when strong patriotism and modest values go against a generation blossoming into its own and discovering its impulses and passions.

The character Hal Carter, played by J.T. Menchaca, was viewed as the boy who seemed to find some form of trouble along the way where ever he went, doing whatever he could to make his escape from having to face legal matter and law enforcement.
The play was entertaining for the crowd and the casted students performed really well during the play that had lasted from October 21st at 7 PM until Sunday October 24th at 2:30 PM.
“I would’ve washed his mouth thirty times!” Mrs Menchaca expressed regarding the behavior of the character Hal Carter in PICNIC performed by her son J.T. Menchaca during the play.
