The 70-member cast is ready to sing, dance and act their hearts out in this Broadway masterpiece. There are seven shows scheduled, each with local performers from the community.
Director Kim Moore has been working vigorously to ensure that the musical is perfection. Monitoring the lighting, choreography, as well as taking on the role of music director and costume designer, Moore is a gifted individual. The combination of former students of Ponderosa High School and other professional actors is what makes this performance unique.
“If they’re talented, they’re going to be used by somebody else,” said Moore, who also teaches theater at the high school, in the recent article.
According to the Parker Chronicle, the classic Broadway musical tells the story of Nathan Detroit, a shady gambler, and Sarah Brown, a fervent Salvation Army do-gooder. Desperate to find money to pay for his games, Detroit bets Sky Masterson that Masterson will not be able to convince the virtuous Brown to go to Cuba with him.
Tickets are $20 to $25 and available online at www.parkertheatreproductions.com.
