After nearly a ten year absence, Liberty High School is proud to debut its theater program as members take to the stage this Friday, Saturday and Sunday to perform Little Shop of Horrors.
“I am extremely excited for the re-emergence of this program. Despite the small size of our high school, we have many, incredibly talented students and the theater program gives them a platform to showcase their talents,” said high school principal Akesha Joseph.
The theater program was officially relaunched last school year but forced to call it quits early due to the state’s stay at home order. Therefore, they’ve decided to invite back graduates who missed out on the opportunity to perform last year to take part in this year’s performance alongside the talents of 21 cast members, four lighting and sound technicians, nine stagehands and five members of the jazz band.
“It is nice to be able to give a group of talented kids who haven’t had an outlet to showcase their skills, an opportunity to perform,” said production coordinator and teacher Maggie Pentz. “It’s important for students to see a large project from start to finish. We look forward to letting our students experience some fun and spread some joy, at a time when those things have been taken away from many people.”
The performances will take place on Friday, November 20, 2020 and Saturday, November 21, 2020 at 7 p.m, and on Sunday, November 22, 2020 at 2 p.m. Due to social distancing guidelines, tickets have been reserved for family members and close friends of those students who are involved with the production.
