Former Director, Yelm’s Drew Harvey Theater
DREW HARVEY ALUMNI HELP RAINIER HIGH STUDENTS
“The Rainier Players, Rainier Highs brand new drama club, presents its premiere performance, Theater High, starting on January 25, and running for two weekends.
The show is a semi-original musical, featuring songs from numerous prominent Broadway shows, including such Tony award winners as Hair, South Pacific and Wicked. The Book is an original story, based on true and fictional events culled from the experiences of the students themselves. Based on an idea by 16-yr-old Leah Burke, and scripted by a collaborative team of eight of the Rainier Players, Theater High is a delightful mixture of mischief, mayhem and mockery.
This production marks the return to our area of director Nancy Hillman, who ran the Drew Harvey Theater. She is joined in this endeavor by many Drew Harvey alumni, such as Kent Cissna on sets, Daleen Haifley as Vocal Director, Ted Fredericks, Drama Director for the school, Galen Wicks, keyboard accompanist, Jim Haifley on lights, Rae Simpson supervising costumes and props, and Mary McComb as House Manager.
An extra added treat for the young actors was the guest appearance at rehearsals of Patrick Wigren, recently graduated with a degree in theater and dance from Western Washington University, and Lucrecia Longshore accomplished member of the Yelm High School Jazzline team. Patrick contributed a Hip Hop routine to the show and Lucrecia staged a Cheerleading number.
Dates of shows: Saturday, Jan. 31 7pm evening performance
Sunday, Feb. 1 7 pm performance
Tickets are all $5 and may be purchased at the door, at the Blue Bottle in Yelm, or from any of the actors in the Rainier Players Troupe.”
