The Payson High School Longhorn Theatre Company’s first show for the 2009-2010 theatre season is “The Three Musketeers” by Max Bush, adapted from the book by Alexander Dumas.
The show, which features 1600s-era costumes and intense sword fighting, will run Nov. 4-7.
This show has been a popular show for the troupe to produce, but it has waited until just the right year to do it.
The next production is the ever popular senior directed one-acts. Each year, the company picks three or more seniors to direct several one-act plays, and they also travel to acting competitions statewide. The shows will be performed for the public on Jan. 21-23.
The Longhorn Theatre Company also co-sponsors the musical theatre club and will help produce this year’s musical on April 8 through the April 10. The musical is to be announced soon.
The season’s last play will be M*A*S*H by Kim Kelly.
This play has been adapted from the book and the TV series. The author writes many plays that are high school age-appropriate, and this version is one of them.
It follows the popular charters from the 4077 during the Korean War during the fun times and the hard times. The show will play for two weekends — a first for the theatre company.
It will open in the high school studio theatre on April 29, 30 and May 1, then run again on May 7 and 8.
The Payson High School Longhorn Theatre Company was formed in the early 1990s, and over the 21-year history of the company, they have brought to Payson many fine productions. This season will not let you down.
The Payson High School Longhorn Theatre Company would like to thank all of its supporters, from businesses to private donors, along with the Credit for Kids donors to the fine arts. The fine arts are very important to many students in Payson schools, and to community members who enjoy a good show or a music concert.
Please help keep the arts alive in our town and donate to the Credit for Kids fine arts programs. Check out the Longhorn Theatre Company’s Web site www.phs longhorntheatre.com for upcoming events and more.
