Lyle Middle School and Lyle High School will present their production of Disney's "High School Musical, Act 1" on Nov. 9 and 10 at the Dallesport Elementary School at 7 p.m.
The cast has had to overcome many obstacles to produce this play in a short time frame. Many of the students were challenged by the fact that it was musical, and some said, "but we can't sing." They were encouraged to have fun and the magic of live theatre would come through.
The cast of 26 has been hard at it for five weeks. The cast includes Beau Kitchens, Jesika Cochenour, Lacy Kitchens, Kyle Murphy, Jim Price, Drew Bernier, Chris Grace, Ramon Garza, Ashley Hutson, Auzreal Harvey, Tori Wilkins, Olivia Fox, Angelique Cox, Joye Carabin, Corey Bernier, Nicki Anderson, Gwen Ropp, Johnny Metz, Gabrielle Bowie-Casey, Lexy Becker, Holly England, Tia Stuart, Elisa Carneiro, Rosalie Stavaas, Martin Huggman and Dee Williams. The production is directed by Gail Farris.
The music for the production was adapted, arranged and produced by Bryan Louiselle. It is based on a Disney Channel original movie, presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International. All authorized performance materials are also supplied MTI.
