SOUTH GLENS FALLS — Stage 42 Drama Club presents Ghost, on Friday, March 16 and at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 17 in the high school auditorium. This will be the first regional theater company to produce Ghost in the entire Capital District, at 7 p.m.
“This show has been an enriching and meaningful experience for all involved. First off, we’re dedicating the show to the memory of former Drama Club president, Nick Heald, who lost his seven year battle with cancer just this past summer. This has certainly raised the emotional connectivity. Secondly, being one of the first high school troupes to produce this show really provides the opportunity to create a unique vision and tell a story that we feel will really impact audiences. I’ve really enjoyed working on a musical that has strong emotional content that has furthered the growth and range of our theatre students’ acting. This show also incorporates extensive stage combat which has provided new experiences for the students on stage,” said director Betsy Stambach-Fuller.
Featuring Brandon Sarti as Sam Wheat, Allison Hillebrandt as Molly Jensen, Kate Nelson as Oda Mae Brown, and Josh Daley as Carl Bruner. Ghost is written by Bruce Joel Rubin with music and lyrics by Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard.
“This show really taught me the importance of living in the moment because you never know if and when it could be ripped away. As an actor, I’ve grown emotionally and really enjoyed exploring the real process involved with stage combat,” said leading man Brandon Sarti.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door or online at www.sgfdrama.ticketleap.com.
