The Longhorn Theatre Company will present the school version of Tim Kelly’s M*ASH which he adapted from the original novel by Richard Hooker.
This 40-member cast and crew will give you a look into the lives of the many doctors, nurses and Korean nationals that live and work at the M*ASH 4077th as it was set in South Korea in the early 1950s.
The show is full of the zany characters that you fell in love with watching the movie or the TV show. As you enter the Studio Theatre, you will be instantly transported to the 4077th compound. You will feel like you are really there. PHS Drama Department volunteer Thomas Walling directs the actors as drama teacher Kathy Siler directs the technicians. Walling states, “Expect the unexpected in this show which is appropriate for the entire family.” Siler says that she has enjoyed watching her students experiencing living history as they prepared their roles.
M*ASH will play two weekends. It opens Thursday, April 29, at 7 p.m. and plays the following two Fridays, April 30 and May 7, at 4 p.m. in the afternoon as well as the following two Saturdays, May 1 and May 8 at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $5 for adults, $4 for senior citizens and students through 12th grade. Students can get a dollar discount if they wear purple and gold.
