The musical “Don’t Rock the Boat” will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 10, in the commons at Little Wolf High School.
The cast and crew are especially excited about the musical.
“The play is fun to do and the songs are goofy and fun to sing,” said Adam Michalowski. “Mrs. Pamperin (one of the directors) is a blast.”
“I have done plays in the past, but now I need to incorporate singing and choreography,” said Lexi Smiles.
“It’s good for all of us,” said Molly Loughrin. “There are some who thought they would never sing in public and here they are singing, dancing and saying lines in front of a crowd.”
One of the teachers is also in the cast. Patrick Collins, a math instructor, plays a teacher in the musical. He says it is convenient for the students, because they often ask for help with their math homework.
“Mrs. Pamperin is amazing,” Collins said. “She has a lot of patience, but she knows how to crack the whip and gets the best out of us.”
Being in the musical is an entirely new experience for foreign exchange student Anzhelika Iasysheria, from Ukraine.
“It is a hilarious play with lots of fun moments,” she said. “The cast members have beautiful voices and lots of talent.”
“The musical is good for the school and I’m really proud of it,” said Lydia Welch. “We should do (a production) every year and expand our theater department.”
The cost for tickets is $4 for adults, $3 for senior citizens and $2 for students.
Directing the musical comedy are Karyn Pamperin and Jim Quinn, with student directors Molly Loughrin, Adam Michalowski, Jordyn Sachtjen and Olivia Newlun.
