Once upon a Mattress No Sleeper

Posted on May 16, 2017 by


In March, months of rehearsal came to a close, and the drama club put on four performances of Once Upon a Mattress for the community. Students who took part in the show said that their efforts paid off and the show was a success.

“I was very exhausted post-show week, but I know that the hard work was totally worth it,” senior Josh Klopp said.

Audience members were also pleased with their experiences.

“I think that the cast did really well, and they brought the characters to life. The set looked good, and the hair and makeup looked very nice,” senior Katie Jones said.

“It was a wonderful experience, and I’m really glad I got to see it. I loved seeing how hard my friends worked on their performances,” senior Taylor Nattress said.

After over a month of rest, returning club members are ready and anxious to start planning next year’s show.

“I’d like to see something more serious rather than a ‘princessy’ show or a comedy like we usually do,” sophomore Cassidy Vees said.

“I just really don’t want to do ‘Annie Get Your Gun,” junior Jenna Masenheimer said.

Graduating seniors celebrated their time with the club over the past four years by offering up some advice for underclassmen.

“Know how to balance your priorities. Your health, your schoolwork, and your involvement in the show are all very important,” senior Liz Horinka said.

“Get into your character and have fun.  Don’t worry about what your classmates think of it,” senior Samantha Colelli said.

The drama club is expected to once again start the show season in Fall 2017.
