The YPAS cast for Stage Door prepare for their upcoming premiere night on April 25 at 7:30 pm in the experimental theatre with admission costing nine to ten dollars. Eight other showings will follow.
This is the magnet’s first time taking on the play Stage Door, a 1936 play co-written by George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber. It follows the story of Terry Randall, a struggling young actress living in New York City and the two dozen girls who occupy the boarding house she is staying in. “I think it is really cool that the magnet is taking on such a retro play,” said Anna Seiler (10).
Fellow cast member Amy Pan (11) works on perfecting her lines as the opening date approaches. “As long as everything goes as planned, I’ll be fine. I hope, as a cast, we give it all we got,” said Pan.
There are mixed feelings about Stage Door, some aren’t really expecting the best from it. “The play itself seems a little drab. I guess it just isn’t everyones cup of tea,” said Cassidy Meurer (10). The potential outcome of the shows are discussed throughout the school. “No one can really know what will happen, it definitely will be a surprise,” said Nick Struck (10).
“There is a first for everything and it’s Stage Door’s turn at YPAS,” said Seiler.
