G-R high school play

October 28, 2012
Breanna Schlichtmann - Editorial Intern , Reinbeck Courier

This fall the high school drama club is doing a play called Once in a Lifetime. Once in a Lifetime is a comedy in three acts by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman. The story takes place in the 1920s, right when "the talkies" are taking over, and silent films are becoming a thing of the past. Three washed-up vaudeville actors-May, Jerry and George-decide to head West to Hollywood and open a school of "elocution and voice training" for silent film stars who will now need to know how to talk in movies. Along the way, they meet many colorful characters including famous Hollywood journalist Helen Hobart, film tycoon Herman Glogauer, his ditzy secretary Miss Leighton, a playwright named Laurence Vail who is driven to madness by the insanity of the motion picture business, beautiful silent film stars Phyllis Fontaine and Florabel Leigh (whose voices sound like nails on a chalkboard), naive Susan Walker and her overbearing stage mother, as well as a host of wannabe movie stars. The show features seniors Cortney Crozier, Kayla Fobian, Paige Kromas, Cody Ward and Erin Wentzien.

Kayla Fobian, and Cody Ward are both in the fall play. "I feel that this is going to be a very successful production," says Kayla. "I think the community will really enjoy it," adds Cody.

The show will take place on Friday November 2nd, at 7 p.m., and Sunday November 4th at 2 p.m. In the high school auditorium. Be sure to turn your clocks back before Sunday's show! Tickets are on presale special prices for adults, and for children 12 and under. Tickets will be more at the door. The cast will also be hosting a bake sale, all proceeds going towards the Noah Ohrt family.
