School is back in session and with that, clubs are getting back into the swing of things. Gull Lake’s Performing Arts Company, otherwise known as PAC, is getting ready to start work on their fall show–A Man Who Came to Dinner. PAC director Lisa Ouellette shared how preparations for the show have been going.
“I’ve been looking over the script and the design from the director’s point of view, beginning in the summer,” Ouellette said. “Once the school year starts is when the real work with the actors and tech crew begins.”
The show is about a radio personality who slips on a patch of ice on his way to a dinner party. He becomes a long-term guest to the dinner hosts and brings chaos along with him.
“I think students are going to enjoy [the show]. It’s a really entertaining story that has a lot of laughs,” Ouellette said.
If you’re interested in participating in PAC, an informational interest meeting will be taking place on September 16 in the Blackbox Theater. Be there at 2:25 p.m. to learn more about the Performing Arts Company and its upcoming events for this year. Both old and new members are welcome and encouraged to go.
“We’re always looking for new people,” Ouellette said. “There are a lot of opportunities in this show for people who want to try out acting.”
Auditions are scheduled to take place on September 23 and 24.
“[PAC] is a good experience for people to have, even if you don’t consider yourself an actor,” Ouellette said.
So as you’re settling into your new schedules, consider checking out our school’s performance company or seeing when the performances will be occurring later on in the season.
