Historic stage to host Just Another High School Musical

Have you ever seen a play gone wrong? If not, here’s your chance.

The drama club will be presenting Just Another High School Musical. Frustrated at a lack of attendance at rehearsal, the director has headed south for Mexico to become a professional salsa dancer and leaves the Assistant Director and Stage Manager to fend for themselves to come up with a show on their own.

When the Assistant Director forgets what show they are supposed to be putting on, the Stage Manager steps in and has the cast of the show pick certain parts of different plays to go through.

Just Another High School Musical is a comedy with compiled snips of different famous plays with their own little twist. Some of the well known musicals that are featured in the play are, Little Women, and A Christmas Carol.

“We are the first group to put on a play at the old high school since it opened and with this play having very minimal sets, this was the best show for us to put on,” said director Maria Standiford.

Just Another High School Musical will not be shown at the PHS auditorium. The play will, however, will be shown at the Hillcrest Apartments on the old PHS stage. Admission to the show will be $3 for the show only and $8 for dinner and the show. Tickets will be available only at the night of the performance and you can buy them at the Hillcrest auditorium. There will be a diner served during the show and the main course will be spaghetti and garlic bread, with a desert of brownie Sunday served during intermission prepared by the drama club.

Just Another High School Musical will be starring many wonderful actors from Paoli High School and the show will include The Paoli High School Drama Department’s first ever live student piano accompanist, Ashley Allen. Most of the dances that will be in the show were choreographed by PHS sophomore, Hannah Thill.
