With winter beginning to pass and PC’s spring programs starting up their seasons, the theatre department prepares for a new performance. On March 25-26, audiences will have the opportunity to support PC’s Fine Arts in it’s newest selection for the annual Spring Play, Neil Simon’s Fools.
“I’m very excited about the production,” said senior James Beyer. “With such a fun cast, it will be especially fun working on a comedy. It’s a great selection, and I know we will do our best to fulfill the play to it’s potential.”
Directed by Marlo Van Peursem, the play is set in the late 19th century and tells the comedic tale of a small town that had a vengeful curse of idiocy placed upon it over 200 years previous.
Starring seniors Jalayna Morgan, James Beyer, and junior Alexis De Vries as the Zubritsky family, and senior Ryan Howey as Leon Tolchinsky, the hero of the tale, the story is sure to bring laughter.
“When I was a freshman, I knew my place as the tech booth, so being on stage, especially the lead, was beyond my imagination!” said Howey. “After beginning practice, I can tell you this show will be absolutely hilarious. Whether you enjoy theatre or not, this show will make you laugh like crazy, as it is filled with lots of comical acting and stupid humor.”
Tickets for the play go on sale March 6 from the PC office for $10.
