Cloverdale High School has scheduled its first spring play in several years for 7 p.m. today.
The comedy, "Curtain Going Up!" will take place in the high school cafetorium.
"Curtain Going Up!" is a play within a play, as the story revolves around a naive first-year teacher trying to direct a group of exuberant students in her first production.
The teacher, Miss Burgess (portrayed by Chelsey Mann) also has to fend off the flirtations of the journalism teacher, Mr. Carter (portrayed by James Robinson) while trying not to anger the home economics teacher Miss Moran (portrayed by Megan Arnold) who is fond of Mr. Carter.
Students feud over their parts and love interests alike, as Nancy (portrayed by Julie Cox) loses the lead role and her boyfriend to Lorry Fuller (portrayed by Lora Cummings).
That is just the tip of the iceberg. Throw in a disgruntled janitor, a melodramatic Broadway actress, typical high school mayhem and the end result is a delightfully comic play that is appropriate for the whole family.
Tickets will be sold at the door and are $4 for CHS students, $5 for non-CHS students and adults, $2 for children under 12, and $4 for senior citizens.
CHS students must present their student identification in order to receive the discounted rate.
