Canton Central performs 'Our Girls' farce comedy Friday and Saturday
CANTON – Canton Central School will present their fall drama production of “Our Girls,” a farce comedy in three acts by Conrad Seiler on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 12 & 13 in the Hugh C. Williams High School auditorium at 7:30 p.m. under the direction of Ms. Devon Butler.
Kimberly Busch and the high school Technical Theater class have designed and built the scenery with the assistance of Bill Newman who advises the painting of the scenery. Sue Dean and Robin McNamara have put together the costumes for our young actors.Ticket prices are $8 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens and will be available in advance in the high school office and at the door.
In this 1930’s era play, the Lovejoys (Jay Foster-Grover & Anna Tulloch) have named their sons "Jesse (Austin Antle)," "Francis (Ansel Shipley)," and "Vivian (Michael Shirtz)," because Mildred’s Aunt Jessie (Anna Newman) doesn’t like boys.
Aunt Jessie lives in England, so it has been easy to deceive her. She must never know that the "girls" who are to inherit her money are boys--very real boys.
When Aunt Jessie decides to pay a visit and bestow on her eldest "niece" in person a portion of her inheritance, the real drama starts.
The show also features Nicole Curtis as the Swedish maid “Hulda,” Cassandra Griffin as Vivian’s girlfriend from next-door named “Phyllis,” and Ryan Martin and Kyle Nason as delivery men.
