BRIEF: Drama to present comical production

It is that time of year again when the drama class puts on a performance to showcase their talents and hard work. This year’s play is called Meet Me in St. Louis, with Lucas Lopez, ’14, Miriam DeWolf, ’13, Jenna Orcutt, ’13, and Caitlin Gains, ’15, as the leads in the production.

The play takes place in 1904 in St. Louis, Missouri on the brink of the World’s Fair. The Smith sisters are excited to attend the fair that will take place in their hometown, and begin to get involved in their only brother’s love life. The sisters are under the impression that he will leave his hometown sweetheart for a stuck-up girl from the East.

At the same time their father, Mr.Smith, receives a new job in New York and plans to move the whole family to start a new life, meaning they will miss the fair. Once the news reaches the girls they begin their plan to stay in St. Louis.

Mr. Smith is played by Lopez, ’16, who hopes that his fellow peers go and enjoy the show. Lopez is excited to perform and looks forward to seeing the audience’s reaction to the play.

“I think the play is going to be really fun, and I really encourage people to come and enjoy the show with each other,” Lopez said. “I have to admit that I am a bit nervous, but after the first show I usually calm down and it becomes more routine. I hope the audience leaves with a good laugh, a life lesson, and I hope they are entertained.”

Sophomore Jordan Castro has been involved in drama for around six years and always looks forward to performance time.

“I think this is a really funny play,” Castro said. “Water will be used against certain enemies in the play. Overall it’s kind of chaotic, but an organized play and super fun to watch. I’m not too nervous about getting on stage because I have done it for so long, and I only have a few lines.”

Drama and music teacher Susan Ainley encourages everyone to bring their friends and family to go and support the production.

“The students have worked extremely hard on this play,” Ainley said. “Meet me in St.Louis is a very funny play everyone will enjoy it. Everyone should come ready to laugh really hard and support all the students that have worked so hard. I hope the audience will see the hard work ethic of our students, many of whom are involved in sports, music, journalism and anything you can think of. They have still given all their hard work and attention to this play.”

The campus drama department will present Meet Me in St. Louis on April 26-27 at 7 p.m. and April 28 at 4 p.m. Tickets are $5 at the door, and $2 for FC students.
