Youth casts to stage two plays this weekend

By Michael Jacobson

Local students will present two plays - "Wishing You Were Here" and "If the Shoe Fits" - on Friday, March 12, and Saturday, March 13, through a mini-theater program through Community Education.

Performances, in the school auditorium, will be on Friday, March 12, at 7 p.m., and Saturday, March 13, at 1:30 p.m.

Group of Kids "Wishing You Were Here" is a short play about a school for future fairy godmothers, according to play directors Colleen Pelton and Sue Teicher. In the play, a young fairy in training gives a girl everything she wishes for, but when the wishes come true they don't create the ending the girl or the fairy expected.

"Wishing You Were Here" features a cast of 13. Performances of both plays will be staged in the school auditorium on Friday, March 12, at 7 p.m. and on Saturday, March 13, at 1:30 p.m.

The second play is "If the Shoe Fits," featuring some of the traditional characters from "Cinderella." This spoof of "Cinderella" has a kidnapping gang and a prince and Cinderella who don't want to get marriedÉthey want to go to college.

Tickets - costing $3 for adults and $1 for children - will be sold at the door.
