Upcoming Play: Update “The Show Must Go On…!”

Mason Mulvaney, Writer

 “The show must go on!” That would probably be the motto for this year’s play when considering the things that have happened both in public and behind the scenes. The biggest thing that happened this year was the Ag building catching fire. How does this affect the drama team? The Ag building was where they stored almost all of the props for the plays. Many things had been burned up in the fire, but the drama club came up with a solution: just build what they needed for this year’s play. Not everything had been destroyed, which was definitely a relief, seeing as it would have been a large expense to replace it all. Plus, it might’ve cost the drama team the play.


 Behind the scenes, the drama team had a considerable amount of actors and actresses to fill the roles for “Borrowed Time,” this year’s chosen play, but within a couple of months, after losing several actors and actresses, the team was forced to make some adjustments to the roles being played. There are now only seven actors and actresses in the play, but there are a handful of students helping out backstage. On the brightside, the play has been moving along almost as if nothing had happened. In fact, the drama club will be doing a pre-showing of the play, with Mr. Lingafelter’s gracious approval. High school students who wish to see it may pay $1 to get out of class to see this sneak peak of the play on Friday, April 27. The showing will be of the first act. It has also been decided that for the dinner before the play on Friday and Saturday, there will be cheeseburgers and grilled cheese sandwiches, along with the possibility of root beer floats to go with it. The price of the tickets for Friday and Saturday’s dinner and theater is $10 for adults and $8 for students. If you wish to just see the play on Friday and Saturday, the price is only $5 for adults and $3 for students. There will only be the showing of the play on Sunday, April 29, so the price of the tickets is only $5 for an adult and $3 for a student.


 “Borrowed Time” is a comedic play about time travel and the effects of it. The times that it will be showing is 7 p.m. on April 27 and 28, and it will be shown at 2 p.m. on April 29. The production will take place in the Performance Gym at Wayne City High School.
