The students at Westport Central School will perform for the community slapstick comedy, “The Love of Three Oranges,” on March 30 and 31.
With a cast of 29 students and one student musician, the Italian Opera rewritten for High School performance is sure to be an amusing comedy for the whole family. The performance will be held at 7 p.m. both nights in the Westport Central School Auditorium.
“It’s going to be spectacular,” Westport Central School Principal, Michelle Friedman, said.
Paul Mudie, Technology teacher at WCS and director for the play, said the students have been practicing since February to deliver this comedy for audience members. Students chose this play for its comedic opportunity and vast content to have a something for every member of the family.
“People should expect to be entertained with some real slapstick comedy and live music by Soyoung dispersed throughout the play,” Mudie said.
“The Love of Three Oranges,” is the wild, raucous slapstick comedy based on a scenario by Carlo Gozzistory. It is the story of Prince Tartaglia whose life is filled with misery until an evil Witch curses him to search for three, four-foot tall giant oranges. His quest is more fruitful than anyone can imagine as he discovers love, friendship and laughter.
Soyoung Park, an exchange student at Westport school, will set the tone for the play with a variety of musical scores performed on the piano.
Admission for the Adults will be $5 at the door to help support the drama department and there will be a $3 admission for students and seniors.
