Are you ready to laugh and feel warm and fuzzy? Carson High School has just the show for you ó “100 Lunches.” The play will be performed this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
“100 Lunches” is a romantic comedy about a playwright who falls in love with a critic over the course of a series of lunches.
“It’s a classic boy-meets-girl kind of story that just makes you feel good,” says director Alex Reynolds.
“A lot of laughs are had during the lunches by the strange and inventive waitstaff at the different restaurants. It all leads to a great moment of realization in Act 3 where we all get to say ‘awwwww.’
“I’m excited about this show because my first set of students in my first show at Carson are now all seniors and make up the majority of the cast.
“They are dedicated to making the show something that the audience will enjoy, and they have worked hard to make sure their last show at Carson is something they will enjoy and remember for years to come.
“My seniors Anna Maphis and Cody Gasque have done a terrific job falling in love during each run of the show in practice. Kacey Cline adds so much humor. Erin Basinger brings the crazy as the next-door neighbor. Not to mention Robby G. and Rob Hunter as waiters who may bring the house down.
“Tim Olsen is the one lone principal who is not a member of the senior class, and he holds his own on stage as well as the rest.
“I’m proud of this cast and all the people who have worked as extras and tech crew,” Reynolds adds.
Friday and Saturday performances are at 7 p.m.; the Sunday performance is at 3 p.m.
Tickets are $5 at the door. Proceeds from the performances will go to fund the school’s big spring musical, “Footloose.”
