Unioto is presenting this copywriter production through special license with Musical Theatre International, the performance rights organization responsible for administration and management of licensing for the play. This year’s play is directed by Mr. Frank Elliott and Mrs. Maureen Simon. Choreography was designed and taught by two of the drama club’s own, Aurora Lemaster and Larissa Thompson. “We are very proud of this cast and all of their achievements in this production.” said Frank Elliott. “The students have taken leadership this year and have contributed to the staging of this fun show.” Tickets will be available at the door. Prices will be $8 for Adults and $5 for students. The doors will open at 6:30 PM and the Curtain will open at 7:00 PM. Refreshments, Star Grams and more will be available for purchase which will further help future Drama Club Productions!
