Teens prepare to stage fun-filled play

Making it in Hollywood never looked so easy until you meet the questionable characters who want only one thing: your money.

Home schoolers are in the midst of rehearsals at Asker Church for a fun rendition of Teens in Tinseltown, a fun play about making it big in Hollyood and dealing with not-so-trustworthy agents.

Directors Debbie and Dean Zepick of Zepick Musicals are pushing young actors to their full potential for this romp that brings young and hopeful performers to Milo Bravo’s Workshop of Dramatic Art And Stuff. With Bravo, they soon learn things are not what they seem, explained Mrs. Zepick.

She added the play is set in the 1940s and throws the actors into a variety of illegal and unscrupulous events that is sure to give audiences a laugh-filled experience. “They’re just going to enjoy the humour and the fun,” explained Mrs. Zepick.

The play is part of developing a love of art and culture through the home school program with kids in the junior and senior high school levels, she added. “It’s education. It’s to build a community and have fun.”

She says she tries to pick plays that will give everyone an active roll with strong characters they can play. This year a new slate of actors has joined the crew with parents helping to build the sets and helping out in other areas.

“We have quite a few fairly new students to this whole program now,” said Mrs. Zepick.

The play has three performances at Asker Church starting Wednesday, March 9 to March 11 all starting at 7 p.m. with a matinee at 1:30 p.m. March 11. Thursday’s performance is already sold out.
