The Payson High School Drama Department is ending the year with a laugher-- a fun-filled spinoff of the popular teenage werewolf stories.
Tim Kelly's "It's a Howl" opens Wednesday, May 12, at 7:30 p.m. in the Studio Theatre behind the PHS auditorium, with additional evening performances Thursday and Saturday, and a 2 p.m. matinee on Friday.
Bryon Jones plays a werewolf researcher and part-time mad scientist, Lindsay Lashbrook is the young heroine, Chris Bott is an unmanageable teen werewolf who answers to "Snap," and Rick Welker is the fearsome Alexander, "the meanest werewolf known to history."
"It's a farce-type comedy about teenage werewolves and the problems they have adjusting to society," student director Billy Chester said. "It's a fun show for anyone, and is guaranteed to send you home laughing."
Other cast members include Jenny Cohen, Megan Miles, Sam Strothman, Chelsea Wells, Jamie Rusovic, Hillary Scott, Melissa Stoll, Travis Walton, Christina Culligan, Bekah Sandoval, Ashley Eckstein, Mick Stern, Jennifer Weinland, and Martin Dorris. Anita Meggitt is stage manager and Rick Welker is assistant stage manager.
Tickets are $4 for adults and $3 for students and seniors.
