A new twist to this year's production is Director Kathy Tickner's decision to direct two
casts simultaneously, allowing a maximum number of students the opportunity to be a part of the dramatic arts. Each cast will give one performance each night. Co-directors Lori Fulton and Dana Lee are assisting in coaching the children in theater and performance techniques, as well as character development.
The curtain goes up nightly at 6 and 8 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 26 through Saturday, Sept. 29, in the Excelsior gymnasium. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for seniors, students, and children 2 and older. Children under 2 are admitted free. Excelsior Middle School is located at 14401 Byron Highway in Byron. For more information, call 634-2128 or e-mail Tickner at email@example.com. Tickets will also be available at the door.
