Theater will perform two one-act plays, both featured on Friday, May 3 and Saturday, May 4 at 7 p.m. The first play is “Shadow Box,” which focuses on three different cabins and within each home there is someone who is ill. The second performance is “The Spring Showcase,” which is a variety of skits from “The Carol Burnett Show” and will include songs from “Wicked,” “Kinky Boots” and “Mamma Mia” performed by students from all levels of theater classes.

“[The most stressful part is] the short amount of time [we have] because we have only been in rehearsal for these shows for about a month,” senior and stage manager for “Shadow Box” Sarah Henninger said. “It’s been kind of working around the clock to make sure everybody’s lines [are] memorized and that we have a set because that’s really important.”

The choice to perform “Shadow Box” and “The Spring Showcase” was made by everyone in theater. Theater teacher Wendy Brozek will direct “Shadow Box.” She believes the actors will exceed her expectations for the play as they are all from varsity theater.

“Shadow Box is a show we picked out that we all love,” Brozek said. “It’s a challenging show for our kids to be able to work on, and [because] we [had] the drama, we wanted something that was more fun and a little uplifting [so we chose] ‘The [Spring] Showcase.’”

Henninger has prepared for the shows by studying the script with everyone. She works with actors and their lines, assists on the design of the set and puts mics on students.

“Right now, everything is going super smoothly [and] everybody is being really productive and just on top of everything and so it’s made my job a lot easier,” Henninger said. “There’s just so much that goes into [the shows]. It’s mostly drinking a lot of coffee and making sure you are alert and awake because things move so fast.”

Junior Cadence Hindman will play Felicity in “Shadow Box.” Additionally, she will be a part of “The Spring Showcase,” playing as one of Sophie’s friends from “Mamma Mia.”

“[These shows are] special because they have a message and everyone [working on] them cares so much about [the shows],” Hindman said. “We want to change the audience, we want them to receive that message of hope and laughter and we want them to apply it to their everyday lives like we try to [with] ours.”
