“Into the Woods” Musical opens November 17
LaShay Woodard, Director of SSHS Theater Arts Department and Junior student Jaci Reed visited the KSST Morning Show to promote their production of “Into the Woods”. The play is an adaptation of a movie and involves close to 30 students in the cast. Principal characters include Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, The Witch (Sydnee Hawkins) the Baker (Jace Thompson) and the Baker’s Wife (Jaci Reed) and many others. Though storybook characters, Mrs. Woodard explained that the script is quite involved and the songs quite difficult, so the audience will really get to experience the talent of the students. And, just as each character has a different reason for going into the woods and finding their path, the lesson presented is that each of us enters and experiences life in a different and vital way. The group will hold four performances…Thursday November 17, Friday November 18 and Saturday November 19 at 7 pm, and Sunday November 20 at 2pm. This is the department’s debut on the all-new stage of the SSHS Auditorium , formerly known as the Civic Center auditorium. Admission is $10 person with tickets available from any cast member, in the high school office and at the door. Coming up in December, the SSHS Theater Arts department will present the drama “The Dining Room” featuring advanced theater students.
