MVHS musical an island adventure
Waldoboro — The Medomak Valley Players, directed by retired educator Nancy Durgin, will present “Once On This Island” Fridays and Saturdays, Nov. 9, 10, 16 and 17 at 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Nov. 11 at 2 p.m. — the run’s only matinee — in the Dolloff Auditorium of Medomak Valley High School, Manktown Road. All tickets are $10.
The community is invited to join the MVHS Players on Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty’s island adventure. “Once On This Island” offers a beautiful musical story of star-crossed lovers, living life each day as it comes, and forgiveness. The cast and crew have worked tirelessly with renowned actress/director/choreographer Dixie Weisman and director Durgin to bring this magical fable to life.
The cast features many seniors in their final MVHS musical including Brianna Gross as Ti Moune; Kristen Simmons as Asaka, Goddess of the Earth; Isabelle Lobley as Andrea and other roles, as well as dance captain; Greta Brown as Erzulie, Goddess of Love; Justin Gillman as Daniel Beauxhomme; Amanda Dever as Mama Euralie; Paul Brown as Armand; Angela Gray as Anabelle; Hannah Babcock as Gatekeeper; and Grace Jameson as Natassia. Senior Brenna McAfee serves as stage manager.
This cast of 25, including young Rachel Gross in her second MVHS show, have thrown their hearts and souls into this show and hope to share it with their friends, families and communities. Tickets may be reserved by calling 832-5389.
