Opening with a rendition of “Jailhouse Rock” reminiscent of a famous scene in the 1957 Elvis Presley film of the same name, this character-centered musical features many classic songs by the beloved artist. Set in 1950’s middle America, the play follows  leather-wearing, motorcycle-riding rebel Chad (Blake Sanderson) as he makes his way to a new town and quickly finds himself entangled in a romance but learns there is more to love than meets the eye.

The student thespians performed four showings of the play this week for other students, including the elementary students who enjoyed it Friday morning when I was allowed to attend. Theatre Department Director Haeden Wright and the talented cast and crew hope to pack as many people into the audience as possible for Saturday evening’s show at 6:00 p.m. at the Board of Education Auditorium, which is the only performance open to the public. Tickets are $5 at the door. Don’t Be Cruel, and help them end the year on a high note. Please note that no audio or video recording will be allowed.
