The Pawnee Heights Players will be presenting their Spring musical on March 27, in the Pawnee Heights High School gym in Rozel. The play,” The Elves and the Shoemaker, the Musical,” will be presented at 10:30 in the morning, and again at 7 at night.
Sponsored by the PHS chapter of the National Honor Society, cost of attending the production—if you’re not a student—is some food or other essential supplies for the local food bank. Students will have been voting for their favorite high school class with their donations throughout the week.
The story of the Cobblestones who are having a hard time making a living and end up being aided by a crafty group of elves is one everyone knows, and has now been set to music. The play was written by Karen Boettcher-Tate, and music and lyrics were produced by Bill Francoeur. The production will again be set on the gym floor instead of the stage to allow for much more movement—and fewer technical problems.
Cast and crew members include eigth graders Dalton Hamby, Kale McCoy, Kade Scott, and Logan Williams. Freshmen: Regan Carlson, Caleb Karst, Alli Lupfer, Candice Peterson, Nicole Roberts, and Bailey Seltmann. Sophomores: Micaela Polsen and DaCota Cauthon. Juniors: Catera Hoffman and Kiersten Baier: Seniors: JD Auker and Megan Milch. Staff members also in this production include Jessica Brownlee, Christi Hamby, and Jeana Parker.
The play is being directed by Lee Durler, with help from co-workers Brownlee and Parker. The play is produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service, Inc., Englewood, Colo.
