Theatre students of Victor J. Andrew High School will be putting on a fun, high energy production on Thursday, July 27th that they will also be presenting just a few days later at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland! The show is titled “Somebody Catch My Homework” and follows the everyday lives of fourth graders. Unlike a traditional musical, where the actors would break into song, in this production, they will break into poetry. Alex Craig, a student involved in the production said “We were looking to do something a little different for our show”.
This family friendly, children’s show will be the only one they do before they bring it to Scotland. The show will be at the Andrew High School Performing Arts Center on Thursday, July 27th at 6:30pm. The tickets are only 5 dollars and can be bought at the door.
While in Scotland, the students will not only be able to perform their show, they will be able to watch other student productions, sight see, as well as take in all of the history that Scotland has to offer. “I am very excited to just walk down the streets of Scotland and take in all of the culture and history.” said Craig. Alongside VJA Auditorium Director, Lisa Gonwa, students will have the opportunity to see the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo at the Edinburgh Castle, participate in a traditional Scottish Cedilidh dance at the University of Edinburgh, visit St. Andrews and Falkland Palace, climb Arthur’s Seat and much more!
