The Chadron High one act team will be presenting “John Lennon and Me,” by Cherrie Bennett, Friday and Saturday. The play tells the story of a young girl who suffers from cystic fibrosis and has spent her life in a children’s hospital. It is a touching story of her battle with an incurable disease while learning about friendship through humor and hardship.
Friday’s performance will also include a dinner theater, which is served from 5:30-7 p.m. by the Cardinal Singers. For $12 individuals will be served a chicken noodle casserole, a side salad, rolls, a drink, and dessert, and receive entrance to the performance of the play. Tickets are available at the door or in advance from any cast member or by calling the high school office at 432-0707.
The play will begin Friday at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium, with desserts to follow. Those wanting to simply watch the play may do so as well. The cost for the play is $5, which also includes the dessert bar.
Saturday’s performance of the play will include a performance with Gordon-Rushville, where both schools will be critiqued by judges as they prepare for district competition. The plays will begin at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m., respectively, in the auditorium. The cost is $6.
No passes will be accepted either day as this is the one act team’s fundraiser.
The cast and crew will be traveling to Gothenburg Dec. 1 to compete at districts.
