The Heritage drama department has been working diligently on their production of Disney’s High School Musical! The play opens tonight April 11th and continues April 12th, and April 13th. The show begins at 7PM all three days. Tickets are being sold at the door- $7 for students and $10 for adults. The play will be in the auditorium at Heritage.

We asked Lilli Martin, Johanna Anima, Nayeli Ortiz, and Annie Stribling, all current juniors who are involved, about their experience with the play. “Getcha Head In The Game is one of my favorites because it’s hilarious, but Status Quo is probably our best and I think it’s funny., said Martin as Anima, Ortiz, and Stribling agreed.

 High School Musical is unique for us because it is the first play that they are doing that is from a the time period of our childhoods, rather than a classic; last year’s production was Footloose, and The Giver was before that. Students have been extra excited about this production even since the signs for auditions were first posted in December. “This musical is definitely more anticipated. That’s the reason we even did this,” said Anima. But for some cast and crew, the anticipation only added to the pressure. “We started out with like 20 people, but now there’s only, like, five of us,” said Stribling. To help with the pressure, Martin, Anima, Ortiz, and Stribling all contributed by saying “Being with friends made it less stressful. It was kind of all fun and games until the assistant director started getting onto us about it.”

It takes months to prepare for a play. They hold practice every day of the week after school excluding Monday for three hours, which clearly means they are working hard to perfect this musical. This is an anticipated play at Heritage, so the cast surely feels pressured to do an excellent job reprising their roles. Their hard work and attention to detail is respectable, “some props are from Lingle [Middle School]”, said Ortiz. This is because red is the main school color in the play, as it is at one of Heritage’s feeder middle schools.
