Synopsis

In this contemporary musical comedy, a popular high school basketball star and a shy, academically gifted newcomer discover they share a secret passion for singing. When they sign up together to audition for the lead roles in the school musical, it threatens East High's rigid social order and sends their peers into an uproar.

 

Director:

Karla Wilhelm (Director) Karla began directing in high school at a tiny outdoor theatre in southern Illinois. Moving on with a musical theatre emphasis at Millikin, she took a hiatus from theatre until she had the opportunity to direct the All City District 186 production of Les Miserables at Springfield High School, followed by Real to Reel: Where Broadway Meets the Big Screen, and Cinderella. Then she and her team rocked the TIP stage with Grease in 2015, Footloose in 2014 and the Disney musical version of the movie Camp Rock in 2011, and had record-breaking attendance with Grease and Footloose.

 

 

Ginny Racette (Director) Ginny Racette (Director) has directed plays and musicals at Riverton High School for more than thirty years. Her last two shows at RHS were Footloose and Fiddler on the Roof.  Since retirement from teaching she has once again become involved in community theatre. She has co directed Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and recently assistant directed Crimes of the Heart at Springfield Theatre Centre.   She also returned to acting portraying the role of Ethel in  the STC production of On Golden Pond. Ginny is excited to be a part of the TIP family.
