Join Riversprings Middle School for their March drama production, "Sarah Sydney Takes Hollywood By Storm".Sarah Sydney, 17, has dreams of becoming a star. The problem is she can never seem to get a break. Not only does she get turned down for the national "Make Me a Star" competition, but she even loses the role of Dorothy in her school's production of "The Wizard of Oz" to her long-time rival, Mary Beth.
Sarah's hopes and frustrations play out in a series of funny and vivid fantasies as she confides in Company, an alter ego only she and the audience can see.
Then comes the chance of a lifetime: Sarah's drama class is asked to back up Lance and Tasha, two teenaged singing sensations, in a live performance. Unfortunately, a nasty article planted in the school newspaper gets Sarah in trouble with her drama teacher, who will only allow Sarah to work on the crew.
As the big show is only moments away from airing, Sarah imagines herself taking over the lead. And then in a bizarre turn of events in which life imitates imagination, Sarah suddenly has the chance to take Hollywood by storm!
A real song and dance number highlights the show.
The show is scheduled for Thursday, February 10 at 7:00 p.m. in the Riversprings Middle School cafetorium. Donations will be accepted and there will be a concession at intermission.
