With schedules full of homework and extracurriculars, this year’s fall play offers a respite from the stress with its wit and storyline. This family-friendly show is a great production for everyone to see; the cheerful atmosphere the cast sets on stage is more than enough to leave a lasting grin on anyone’s face.
This dramatic plot is presented by a cast of 16 students and crew of 30. Featured cast members include Claire Fritz (12th grade) as Alice Sycamore, Evan Kready (11th grade) as Tony Kirby, Tori Bressler (10th grade) as Penny Sycamore, Bryan Murray (10th grade) as Paul Sycamore, Emma Buettner (11th grade) as Essie Sycamore, Emma Creason (9th grade) as Gay Wellington, and Carter Rutkowski (12th grade) as Grandpa Martin Vanderhof. Ms. Blaisdell, a teacher at EAHS, acts as the director of the production along with Mrs. Rutkowski.
What sets this production apart from other shows EAHS has put on in the past is the sense of family and teamwork the cast has built up with one another. Mrs. Rutkowski commented, “While there are leads, they all have big roles, there are no small roles. . . The cast has become best friends.” She also stated that the show is coming together nicely, with the promise that this show will surprise audiences.
The play offers three viewings, one Thursday, November 14, at 7:00 pm, and two on Saturday, November 16, with a matinee at 1:00 pm and another showing at 7:00 pm. Tickets will be sold at the door: $7 for students and seniors and $10 for adults. So although “You Can’t Take It With You”, this year’s fall production is certain to capture your heart.
