New to this year’s play is the addition of a student assistant director, Austin Blair. For the play, Blair helps get the actors together during rehearsal and leads them in what they need to do. Blair said he enjoys having this role because he gets to learn a bit more about theater and interact with Ms. Miltner to see what she goes through while directing.
Ms. Miltner said Austin has helped immeasurably and she is very grateful for the help of all of her assistants.
“The Jungle Book” will be available for the public to see on Nov. 9, 10 and 11. On Nov. 9 and 10, the show will be at 7:30 p.m., and on Nov. 11 at 2:30 p.m. Adult admission will be $6 and admission for students and senior citizens will be $4.
Special to Nov. 11, Veterans Day, veterans will be free of charge. Tickets are available at Hair Trends, Sparkle and all of the school buildings. Profits from this play will fund next year’s play. Also available at each showing, audience members will be able to purchase “jungle grams” to send words of encouragement to a certain cast member. The show choir will also be selling gourmet pretzels in the lobby.
