As students at Glen Cove High School prepare to stage the musical Pippin this coming week, the actors, crew and directorial staff are all busy putting the final touches on the production.
Senior Chloe Stein, one of the leading players in the cast, is very excited. This is her third play at Glen Cove High School, and she invites everyone to come down to see the show. “It’s jazzy, really cool,” declared Chloe.
Tommy DeCarlo, in his fourth performance at the school, stars in the title role. “Pippin is a likeable character who you can relate to,” observed Tommy. “I really like the play. Come and see it…you won’t regret it!”
Danielle Loria is a dancer in Pippin, and she is especially excited to be a part of the production since the play opens on her birthday. She is happy to see the curtains rise after three months of rehearsals, but also sad that this will be her last show at Glen Cove High School. “I’ll never sing and dance the same way with the cast again. It’s been fun to be working with my friends,” she said.
Director of Choral Music at Glen Cove High School Ed Norris has been excited about the challenge of staging Pippin. “The play is full of ‘pizzazz.’ It’s a different kind of musical. Captivating…not a ‘cookie-cutter’ show by any means!” he exclaimed.
Mr. Norris and his cast and crew heartily invite you to see Pippin. It will be showing three nights on the high school stage: Thursday, April 22 (7 p.m.), Friday, April 23 (8 p.m.), and Saturday, April 24 (8 p.m.). Tickets are for sale at the door: Adults–$8, Students–$7, and Senior Citizens–$6. Come out and enjoy the extraordinary talents of Glen Cove High School’s fine performing artists, while showing them your support.
