Fall play will keep audience in stitches The LCHS Drama Department will present “Just Another Snow Day” on November 9, 10, and 11 at 7 PM in the Little Theatre. “Just Another Snow Day” is a humorous collection of scenes showing what happens to different people in a town when a snow storm hits. “It’s snow joke,” director Erin Ohrlund reported, “This play is funny.” Ohrlund explained, “From the first read-through, every rehearsal has been full of laughter, partly because of the funny script, but mostly because of the comedic genius of our actors! Watching them battle the imaginary snowstorm, seeing them develop their pratfalls, and listening to them devise even more antics has been a blast! Actors, rehearsal assistants, and set crew have worked hard to create quirky characters and crazy scenes that audiences will love.” Students have enjoyed preparing the play. Madelyn Johnson said, “The best thing about the play is being able to hang out with people whom I might not see otherwise.” Cast members encourage everyone to come. “The play is really funny and entertaining. It has a unique storyline that students can relate to,” said senior Andrea Barrett. Megan Friederich explained, “People from far and wide will enjoy this play for it will make you laugh and make you cry. It is the peak performance of the century and the epitome of a great time.” Hannah Brennan added, “Everyone should come see the play because the cast and crew has put a lot of effort into the show. Also...I am the student director, and everyone will be able to see me stumble through my speech.” According to Caden Washburn, “This play is not great, but awesome in the most literal sense. The play is so good that people will be afraid to come in and watch its glory. This play will make people die of laughter and cry until there is no water left in their bodies. Also my mom thinks that our plays are pretty funny, so everyone should come.” by Madison Mahan “Just Another Snow Day” November 9, 10, 11 Little Theatre 7:00 PM $5
