Make at stop on "42nd Street," a timeless example of music theater at its best! Presented by special arrangement with TAMS-WITMARK," Vestal High School will present performances at 7 p.m., February 27 - 29, and a matinée performance at 1 p.m. on Sunday, March 1.
An exuberant and talented student cast highlights the rise of a small-town girl from Pennsylvania from showgirl to star! The role of notorious director "Julian Marsh" is shared by Asher Danton and Conner Smith, while the starry-eyed ingénue "Peggy Sawyer" is alternated by Sachiko Nicholson and Abigail Sprague. Other key roles are co-played by Caden DellaPenta and Andrew LaClair as "Billy;" Hannah Gdovin and Annie McNulty as "Dorothy;" Ethan Garcia and Noah Walsh as "Bert;" Taylor Ballard and Dora Donacik as "Maggie;" and Dominic Perfetti and Josh Sifert as "Pat." Finally, "Anytime Annie" is brought to life by Brenna Burdick, and senior Jack Zhou takes his final bow on the high-school stage as "Andy."
Director Austin Kiley, along with Assistant Directors/Choreographers Laura Preston and Quinn Singer, leads a cast of over 40 student performers and two-dozen crew. Conducting the orchestra is Maureen Kiley and set designer is Christopher Duffy.
Tickets will be on sale at the door one hour before each scheduled performance and are $10 for adults, $8 for students and senior citizens.
