Everyone is invited out for a night of enjoyment, as the Gouverneur high school drama club presents Aladdin Jr.
Performances of the musical will be held on the evenings of Friday March 22nd and Saturday March 23rd beginning at 7p.m. in the high school auditorium. The cost per ticket is $7.00 for adults and $5.00 for children and senior citizens.
Emily Bason, Gouverneur high school teacher and director of this year's musical, is very excited for this show.
“The students have been working so hard to make up for rehearsal time lost due to early dismissals and snow days, but it is a labor of love and it's really coming together. I'm very proud of them all,” said Mrs. Bason.
“This is my first year directing the high school musical. I did direct shows for the middle school drama club for 10 years,” said Mrs. Bason of the experience.
“I was in several shows when I was in high school here and also did some of the community theater performances. I've also helped with hair, make-up, set construction and costumes for the high school shows when needed,” said Mrs. Bason of her experience in theater.
As this year's theme is a Disney show, she said children attending are encouraged to dress as their favorite Disney character if they would like.
“There will be audience participation,” said Mrs. Bason. “It should be a night of entertainment for all indeed.”
Be sure to come and support the high school drama club and enjoy a fantastic show!
