April 27-29 students will perform in the spring musical, “Once Upon a Mattress,” directed by Mr. Brian Coleman, at WCHS in the Guiler Auditorium.

“Once Upon a Mattress,” is a comedic retelling of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, “The Princess and the Pea.”

Opening night is on April 27 at 7 p.m., with two additional performances on April 28 at 7 p.m., and April 29 at 2 p.m. Presale tickets are $8 for students and senior citizens, and $10 for adults. You may order online at this link https://bit.ly/2HHJYpV, pick up order forms in the main office, and tickets will be sold at lunch on Thursday and Friday, April 26 & 27. Students can also buy their tickets at the door for $10.

Junior Grace Kirk will perform as the Minstrel, who acts as the narrator, and is an integral piece of the plot.

Kirk was very excited about her position and portrayal of the character. She said, “I love singing and performing with the friends I’ve made in the cast. Watching the show come together in the end always brings a feeling of accomplishment as well.”

Kirk said she finds it very difficult to manage her time during musical season, but she loves it and will definitely be doing it again for her senior year.

Sophomore Ally Farris plays music in the pit, directed by Ms. Laura Bukosky, which is an entirely different process, but works toward the same goal; a professional and engaging show. This is her first year playing with the pit, and she mostly plays keyboard and glockenspiel.

For Farris, practice has been enjoyable and she’s having smooth experience learning the material. The whole pit practices together on Mondays and Wednesdays, and Farris practices whenever she can.

Farris says, “I’ll definitely do pit again next year. It’s so fun and I highly encourage anyone to do it. It’s a great learning experience filled with great people.”

If you have time on the weekend of April 27-29, please come show your support for the students and staff involved in the musical. It’s going to be an incredible performance filled with many talented WCHS students.
