Milford High School Drama Club will present their fall play “The Epic Quest of the Damsels in Distress”

The students of Milford High School’s Drama Club are thrilled to present “The Epic Quest of the Damsels in Distress!”

Written by Kenneth Wasemann, this play is a take on fairy tale stereotypes—but flips them around.  It contains a monster, fairies, a fairy queen, a knight, a prince, a gladiator, an angry mob of villagers, and four strong women on an epic adventure of self-discovery.  Director Carissa Meiklejohn says, “We selected this show for its theme of female empowerment and its hilarious comedy.”

In addition to all the fun and laughter, this show has provided some exciting learning opportunities for members of the drama club. Meiklejohn says, “This rehearsal process has been fun because we’ve gotten to do some workshops on stage combat to train the actors in sword fighting and stage hits to ensure that the show elements are done safely.”

Cast members in this production include Aria Boyton, Giovanni Burgos, Angelo Carannante, Charleen Chavez, Merary Haro-Purata, Trinity Hopkins, Madison Long, Brianna Lyons, Michael McKain, Cameron Murray, Jude T. Parfitt, Eli Rauch, Abagayle Ruczynski, Bronx Stanfield, and Vahsti Villa.  Elliana Stoliker is the Stage Manager, and Will Evans is Assistant to the Director.

 Performances will be held in the Milford High School Auditorium, now known as the Gerald W. Thompson Center for the Performing Arts, on Friday, November 3 and Saturday, November 4.  Both evening shows will begin at 7:00 p.m.  There will also be an afternoon matinee on Saturday, November 14 at 1:00 p.m.  Tickets will be available at the door.  Adults $7.00; Students and Senior Citizens $5.00.
