William Chrisman High School Theatre Presents The Beverly Hillbillies and Honors an Alum
The William Chrisman Theatre Department will present its winter play, Beverly Hillbillies, with performances on Thursday, January 31, Friday, February 1, and Saturday, February 2.
“The play will be based off of the TV series,” theatre teacher Kim Hayes said. “The hillbilly family strikes oil, becomes rich and moves to Beverly Hills.”
The performance has added meaning because the TV series was written by 1929 Chrisman graduate Paul Henning.
It also marks one of the final performances for the Chrisman seniors involved in theatre.
“I’m super excited,” said senior Emily Sukolics. “It’ll be my 11th show.”
The cast of 30 have put in hard work and dedication.
“We have been rehearsing since before Christmas break,” said Junior Spencer Long. “I’m very excited for our opening night.”
The shows will start at 7 p.m. each night. Tickets will be $5 in advanced and $6 at the door.
