From Terry High School
If you had to write a play about your life, would it be boring? Would it be filled with wild characters or ordinary people? Unfortunately, Michelle’s life has been anything but interesting. Thus begins this year’s Junior/Senior Play.
Michelle (Dani Dukart) has to write her life story for a class, but she is worried because her life is too ordinary. Luckily, she is saved by a playwright (Lizzy Lacquement) who promises to help her liven up her play with “stock characters.” Suddenly the stage is filled with pirates and princesses, gunslingers and psychics, clowns and rappers. There's even a Greek chorus along for the ride. When the play threatens to spin out of control, another famous playwright (Franque Robertson) steps in to save the day.
The play is a fast-paced, character-filled, costume-changing good time for both the audience and the cast. Other than the three main characters, each of the other cast members plays a variety of roles, involving quick costume and makeup changes. The juniors and seniors, rehearsing frantically for this performance, include Jerett Freiboth, Kristina Fredrickson, Amanda Haidle, Katie Higgins, Shawnee Kirkpatrick, Deven Morrison, Taylor Pisk, Trayton Schroeber, Samantha Springer, Carly Stickel, Tanner Stickel, and Lorna Wollman. Genna Schroeber is also making making a guest appearance. Jordan Freiboth will be providing makeup and hair styling for all the characters. Paula Rein, Jo Ausk, and Kay Pisk are directing.
Performances will be Friday, May 14, and Saturday, May 15, at 7 pm in the Ray Frank Gymnasium at THS. Admission costs are $5 for adults and $3 for students. Please join us to find out how Michelle’s life turns out.
