GCHS Drama selling season club cards

The Garden City High School Drama Department is now selling 2018-19 season club cards.

The $20 club card gains entrance to each of the mainstage productions, which is a savings of $20 on ticket prices over the entire 2018-19 season. The card serves as your ticket and will be punched at the door on the night you attend the performance.

In addition to your tickets, club members will also receive a monthly e-newsletter that will update members on theatre and arts programs at GCHS and exclusive access to a club member reception during the spring production of Evita.

GCHS Drama Season Schedule

The GCHS Drama Department will kick-off the 2018-2019 season with William Shakespeare’s classic Hamlet. Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy will be presented at 7 p.m. September 27 and 29, and 2:30 p.m. September 30.

Appealing to all ages with an infectiously unforgettable score, the second show of the season will be the Tony Award-winning musical, Pippin, at 7 p.m. Nov. 9 and 10, and 2:30 p.m. Nov. 11.

With lyrics and music by Stephen Schwarts and script by Roger O. Hanson, this 2013 circus-inspired revival was first directed and choreographed by Bob Fosse on Broadway in the 1970s. This coming of age story follows Pippin, Charlemagne’s oldest son, as he tries to find his way through life and his journey to become extraordinary.

In the spring, GCHS will present the story of the legendary Eva Peron in Evita – a Tony Award-winning musical by Andrew Lloyd Weber and Tim Rice.

Evita follows the rise of an ambiguous yet ambitious actress who becomes the powerful and controversial first lady of Argentina. Performances will be 7 p.m. on March 1, 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. on March 2, and 2:30 p.m. on March 3.

David Farr’s comedy, The Heart of Robin Hood, will round out the GCHS Drama Department’s 2018-19 season.

First produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company, this play follows the story of the not-so heroic Robin Hood. This historic tale goes rogue when a new hero emerges in the bold Marion who steps in to protect the poor and show Robin what it means to be good.  The performance will be staged April 25 – 28.
