MHS spring play is 'The Great All-American Musical Disaster'
Mitchell High School's spring play, "The Great All-American Musical Disaster," starts at 7 p.m. today and is also Saturday at the MHS auditorium. Play director Mel Olson said some of his students were in another activity on Friday, which is why it is not on consecutive nights.
Olson described the play as a "comedy of egos and errors," where film producer Junior Dover lands every major Hollywood star for his movie by tailoring separate scripts to meet each star's requirements. As all of these big names think they're the star, Dover secretly shoots several movies at once, which he plans to edit it into one final product. The "fly in his buttermilk," Olson said, is Dover's financiers' insistence that their untalented daughter star in the show.
"Of course it all comes crashing down on him with comedic results," Olson said.
Tickets are $3 for students, $5 for adults, all general admission, and available at the door. Olson said school activity passes will be honored, providing free entrance.
