The Post High School Drama department will be performing and hosting a dinner theater on Saturday, May 5, 2012. The meal will be served 6:30 p.m. in the Post ISD Cafeteria.
During the dinner, drama students singing solos and group numbers will be performing classic songs from Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” to Etta James’ “At Last”. After the dinner, guests will be directed to the Post ISD Auditorium for “The Pirate Show” which should start around 8 o’clock.
The play, “The Pirate Show,” is a hilarious comedy with a band of English Pirates (women) on “The Pretty Penelope” trying to beat a band of Spanish Pirates (men) called “The Bandidos Locos” to a buried treasure! On the way they each pick up a stowaway and end up buying an Orphanage to save the residents from their evil caretaker! Musical numbers have been added to the play, and we guarantee you will have a rip rolling good time!
Students involved in the production are Kari Dunn, Shirley Araiza, Kambry Mason, Kayla Comeaux, Steven Howard, Jose Rodriguez, Kelsey Isbell, Josh Curtis, Stephen Rodriguez, Janice Curtis, Katie Dunn, Maritza Alaniz, Breana Alvarado, Jordan Barbosa, Isreal Gonzales, Mondo Martinez, Christian Pena, Jaime Marquez, Kelsey Griffin, Zach Quinonez, Rosetta Taylor, and Lily Maldenado. Directors are Tim, Leslie and Laurel Tatum, with musical direction from Cathy Sawyers.
This is the third production from the theater department this year. The group kicked off the year with a rousing performance of Grease and then competed in UIL OAP competition with “The Shadow Box.”
“This is a great way to end the year and to get prepared for next year! Everyone needs to come out and enjoy this wonderfully talented group of kids perform,” said Tim Tatum.
Anyone interested in purchasing tickets can email Tim at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school at 495-2770 and leave a message for him. Dinner Theater tickets are $15.00 with tickets for “The Pirate Show” alone can be purchased in advance or at the door for $8.00. All proceeds benefit the PHS Theater Department.
