Ready to laugh?
Chase High School will be full of laughs Thursday night.
The Chase High Theater Troupe will perform “No Man’s (Aisle) Land,” a comedic play written by drama teacher Patrick Moss, at the high school at 7 p.m.
“It follows the plight of a character named Lisa and her friends. They are in their mid-twenties and are very excited about having a bachelorette party. Then Lisa informs them they are not actually having a party, they are going on a bridal trip with her future in-laws,” Moss said. “They are going on a dinner cruise to the Caribbean with a 14-year-old sister and an overbearing mother-in-law.”
The dinner cruise ends in disaster when the women hit a storm and are stranded on a deserted island.
“When on the island they are introduced to a new character named Leslie who has been on the island for a while. She has found gold, so you have a search for gold and then there is a thought that she might be a cannibal,” Moss said. “It’s definitely a comedy. It’s done over the top. But there are some serious moments in there so it’s not completely silly.”
The 11-member, all female cast has been rehearsing for this performance since February. According to Moss, one of the highlights will be a fight between all of the characters.
“They did really well with it. I gave them a general idea and said safety is our number one priority. They have done really well and it looks really good,” Moss said.
Cast members for the play include Hannah Millwood, Charity Head, Marsden Murray, Joelle Murray, Angel Proctor, Jade Rodriguez, Summer Woody, Sarah Heatherly, Mason Jones, Corissa Turner and Mary Frontena.
Admission for the play is $5 and children under 12 are free.
