Sami Weathersby, a freshman who plays Patty Simcox, said she thinks audiences will really enjoy the dances and humor in the show.
“I would definitely say our musical numbers and comedic moments are the strongest part of the show,” Weathersby said. “I think what stands out to an audience is what makes it laugh, so we have a lot of funny moments and funny people.”
But someone who’s coming back to Silver Creek’s stage for the first time in years said he’s a little timid about working in the place that helped him get a start in professional theater.
Robert Shaw, a 1997 graduate of the school, plays Teen Angel in the show. He said he’s impressed with the work students have done at his alma mater.
“It’s kind of nerve-wracking because I used to do so much here,” Shaw said. “This place was sort of the springboard for my career. I also want to make sure the experience of students working with me is good for them; I know they really busted their humps on this one.”
