Sky View’s Sky High Players wrapped up the four night production of their annual variety show on Monday night.
The roaring twenties were renowned for their jazzy music, speakeasy’s, snappy clothes, and prohibition. Thoroughly Modern Millie now being performed at Sky View has all of these and more.
The Sky View players got together several nights last week and will host several shows this week in an intimate setting for their Mystery Dinner Theater series.
In the mid 1700’s the fairytale of a spoiled prince that is turned into a hideous beast, by a spurned enchantress, spread its way throughout France. Then in 1991 Walt Disney popularized the fairytale in his musical adaptation called Beauty and the Beast. This week and next the Sky High Players are blowing the roof off the auditorium at Sky View with their rendition of the musical.
The Christmas season doesn’t seem to really begin until you see Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol in one form or another. Cache Valley residents have two more chances to see A Christmas Carol – The Musical at Sky View High School tonight and tomorrow.
They say there are two things in life that you can count on, death and taxes. Well it turns out there is another thing you can count on, and that is if you attend a dramatic production at Sky View High School . . . you will never leave disappointed! This year’s variety show put on by the Sky High Players was an entertaining mix that lived up to what we have come to expect from a Sky View show.
With a few sweeps of a giant, fabric tornado, audience members attending the Sky High Players’ production of The Wizard of Oz last night were transported somewhere over the rainbow, where monkeys fly and witches reside. Filled with flying cast members, dancers, and choirs, it was a musical made possible by hours of behind-the-scenes work and practice.
Sometimes high school is just murder. Especially if you are one particular Sky High Player in The Thirteenth Chair. As the last of the three plays put on by the players, the Chair isn’t a comedy like Meet Me In St. Louis although it has it’s funny moments nor is it a drama like 12 Angry Women but still has dramatic tension. Instead, it’s a good old-fashioned whodunnit.
Twelve Angry Women is undoubtably the hardest play the Sky High Players are doing this year. The intensity the all-girl cast must show throughout the performance should be something beyond the years of these young ladies. Yet, they do a wonderful job of showing not just the surface emotion of their roles, but often the subtle undertones of what is actually driving each juror.
The Sky High Players put on a great show Wednesday night as they performed Meet Me In St. Louis before a small audience in the intimate Little Theater at Sky View High School. “I loved it,” said Cami Trappett about performing the play before an audience for the first time. “It’s way different. We are so used to not having those laughs. I’ve never been that close to an audience before.”
Sky View High School’s auditorium was filled the nights of February 3-6 and 8th as the drama department presented Oklahoma. 70 cast members along with the entire sound and light crew were able to make this possible after three months of hard work.
