Harvey by Mary Chase
When Elwood P. Dowd starts to introduce his imaginary friend Harvey, a six and a half foot rabbit, to guests at a dinner party, his sister, Veta, has seen as much of his eccentric behavior as she can tolerate. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare her daughter, Myrtle Mae, and their family, from future embarrassment. Problems arise, however, when Veta herself is mistakenly assumed to be on the fringe of lunacy when she explains to doctors that years of living with Elwood's hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also! The doctors commit Veta instead of Elwood, but when the truth comes out, the search is on for Elwood and his invisible companion. When he shows up at the sanitarium looking for his lost friend Harvey it seems that the mild-mannered Elwood's delusion has had a strange influence on more than one of the doctors. Only at the end does Veta realize that maybe Harvey isn't so bad after all. (description from Dramatist's Play Service)
Scapin's Deceit (Les Fourberies de Scapin)by Moliere
Scapin constantly lies and tricks people to get ahead. He is an arrogant, pompous man who acts as if nothing were impossible for him. However, he is also a diplomatic genius. He manages to play the other characters off of each other very easily, and yet manages to keep his overall goal — to help the young couples — in sight.
In their fathers' absence, Octave has secretly married Hyacintha and Léandre has secretly fallen in love with Zerbinette. But the fathers return from a trip with marriage plans for their respective sons. Scapin, after hearing many pleas for help, comes to their rescue. Thanks to many tricks and lies, Scapin manages to come up with enough money from the parents to make sure that the young couples get to stay married. But, no one knows who Hyacintha and Zerbinette really are. (description from Wikipedia)

Today is a tragic day at Myers Park High School, as we have lost a Mustang family member. Andrew Wright, a freshman, passed away from injuries sustained during a bicycle accident.
Drew was a sincere and genuine young man who was loved by his classmates. He was an avid reader and although this was his first year at Myers Park, he was beginning to make his mark in the Theatre Arts department.
Drew was in the ensemble cast of the Myers Park High School spring musical, Zombie Prom and an energetic member of the Drama Club. Fellow drama students commented that Drew was a gentle soul; was always nice to everyone. He never said anything bad or mean about anyone. One drama student commented, “he worked harder than anyone in the musical.”
Drew was regarded as a caring student and blossoming actor. Both faculty and students have been affected by his passing. The Myers Park family mourns his loss. Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers.
What a fun show!
Congrats to all actors, musicians and technicians!
Although it is sad for a show to come to an end, we all have our next project!
Keep calm and carry on... until the next show.
