East Rowan preparing for spring musical
East Rowan High School will present original script “Age of Aquarius” on April 28 and 29. Performances will be at 7 p.m. each evening in the school auditorium.
The musical follows three high school students, Guy, Rick and Donna. Guy and Rick are in love with Donna and try to convince her to choose one as the three rehearse for the school’s musical. The original script was written by director Dean Orbison and choreographed by Laura Troutman and uses music from the 1960s. Tickets can be purchased at the school from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on April 24 through 27. Tickets may be available at the door if supplies last.
