Film industry spoof gives students lots to play with
Haldane’s middle school students have been hard at work rehearsing The Great All American Musical Disaster, a farce by Tim Kelly, and are ready to strut their stuff next weekend; the public is invited. The play, a farce, with a cast of seemingly half the middle school, will be presented at the Haldane School auditorium next Friday and Saturday, May 31 and June 1, at 7 p.m.
Film producer Junior Dover Jr. hasn’t made a picture since his last flop, Zombies of the Stratosphere, but his latest project has everything — from earthquakes to savage lobsters.
Junior induces every major Hollywood star, a few has-beens, and even a maybe, to appear by tailoring separate scripts to meet each star’s personal requirements. So each star assumes he or she is the whole picture, with the other “greats” relegated to supporting roles — an assumption that leads to all kinds of madcap stage frenzy.
Tickets, which can be purchased at the door, are $15 general and $5 students and seniors.
