The spring musical is just around the corner
Thirty-eight drama students and Drama Teacher Marcy Goodnow embarked on first rehearsals for the Spring Musical, Monday Feb. 1 after an exciting week of auditions and callbacks. “The Drowsy Chaperone” is the second production of the year, and will be the story of an imaginative musical theatre fanatic who’s recording of a fictional 1928 musical comedy, “The Drowsy Chaperone”, the tale of a Broadway actress, Janet Van De Graaff and her decision to marry debonair Robert Martin, comes to life around her as she listens to it in her apartment.
The first two days of rehearsal were strictly read throughs, and from then on rehearsals consist of music, blocking and dancing. Though rehearsals don’t get out until seven in the evening, enthusiasm isn’t dampened amongst the acting
“This is the first show that I’m acting in, but I was on spotlight for Alice in Wonderland. And it’s definitely exciting for me, because I want to pursue acting. I want to pursue that kinda art, as a career.” said freshman Cody Buchholtz, a first time member of dance ensemble,expressing his excitement to be apart of “The Drowsy Chaperone” production. “Not many that Freshmen made it in, so it’s kinda cool that I did end up making it. I didn’t think I was going to make it in, honestly. [I’m] very proud.”
The musical will be performed April 22,23,29,30 at 7:30 P.M. and April 24 and May 1 at 2:00 P.M.
