MAPS SPRING THEATER PRODUCTIONS
Milford Area Public Schools invite you to come out this week and next for two exciting theater productions that are sure to bring laughs and plenty of entertainment. March 13-15, Milford High School will perform “Hairspray Jr.,” and Thursday, March 19, Milford Grade School will do one public showing of “The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood.”
This year’s high school musical is produced by Brian Zecher and Kena Clark, and Zecher says that “Hairspray” is one they have wanted to do for a while now. “We just had to wait for the right group of kids to be able to do it,” he says. 19 students will get to perform in the musical, which Zecher says is a “high-energy show, filled with lots of dancing and great vocal songs.” The students have been working hard and having a lot of fun learning all of the dances and different parts, and it’s sure to be an exciting musical to watch. On top of this, you won’t want to miss the three special guests that are making an appearance in the show. Come out this weekend to find out who they are!
The grade school play will be a lot of fun as well. Heather Bernard and Faith Grace have worked hard to get their students ready, and they are excited to have fifth graders joining them for the first time this year. Bernard says they have been a great addition to the cast, and all of the students really rose up to the challenge for the play. “They made deadlines for memorizing lines and met those deadlines,” she says, and “They are very motivated and enthusiastic. It’s going to be an amazing performance!” Bernard said they chose Robin Hood because they wanted something that the kids and everyone else would be familiar with, and they also just love how funny it is.
You can catch MHS’s “Hairspray Jr.” on March 13th and 14th at 7:00p.m., or Sunday, March 15th at 2:00p.m, and come out for MGS’s “The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood” Thursday, March 19th at 6:00p.m. Both productions will be held in the Grade School gym, and tickets will be available at the door. Come support the hard work from the students and staff, and get some good laughs in while you do.
