North High School’s annual Stages production will be held on Tuesday, June 4, at 7:30 p.m., in the school auditorium, 35 Polo Road. The event is free and the public is warmly welcome.
Stages is one of North High’s interdisciplinary elective programs open to students in twelfth grade. It provides seniors with a college-level seminar experience, embracing the disciplines of music, drama, English, and social studies. Throughout the year, students examine, analyze, and create music and drama, culminating in the development and execution of a performable production.
The 2013 Stages class will be performing Let It Ride, a madcap musical farce, inspired by the famed Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas. It follows the lives and loves of several colorful characters, including showgirls, mobsters, hotel employees, and guests. There is mistaken identity, missed connections, misdirected personnel, and a suitcase full of cash. The audience is bound to tap their feet to the joyous music and laugh right out loud at this rollicking comedy!
The student written and produced show was guided by Stages teachers Roger Ames (vocal music), Susan Babkes (social studies department head), Jeffrey Gilden (English), and Neil Saggerson (fine & performing arts department head).
