This year's fall play at Hancock High School takes place backstage before, during, and after the opening night of a fall play. A high school drama club has prepared for their opening night of Anne of Green Gables. The performance starts out normally enough, but when a rumor spreads that there is an agent in the audience, the students scramble to be discovered.
Anarchy ensues. Wigs fall off, ankles are sprained, and the stage manager sets fire to the prompt script. After the dust clears, the true identity of the agent is revealed.
This year's cast is comprised of both novice and veteran actors. "I'm very fortunate to have all types of actors make up this diverse cast." said director Nicole Schmidt. "What I really enjoy is when the actors have suggestions on how they could make the performance more funny. They are creative kids that have a knack for comedy."
Come out to watch this season's fall play Anne Arky on Friday, Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 10 at 2 p.m.
