GHS Players to present fall play

The GHS Players are proud to present The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus on Friday and Saturday, December 6 and 7, at 6:30 p.m. in The Joseph Stripe Auditorium. Written by Pat Cook based on the stories of L. Frank Baum (the genius behind The Wizard of Oz), it is a fun play that the whole family will love. Look at it as the Santa Claus origin story where we learn one version of where Santa came from, how he thought of flying in a sleigh, coming down chimneys, employing reindeer and elves and how he came to be the most beloved character of Christmastime. 

Junior Sean Hilliker wears the red suit and beard as the lead character while senior Olivia Van De Ven plays a spunky wood nymph named Necile who takes on the daunting task of being Claus' adoptive mother. Senior Katie Snider plays the queen of the Burzee Woods, and junior Andrew Walsh plays King Ak of the Burzee Woods, where Claus was raised among the immortals. There are 33 students in the cast and a stage crew headed by senior Ben Snyder.

Director Chad Patterson says, "We are happy to have new freshmen join our cast and crew and invite all students to be part of spring musical which will be announced soon."

Tickets will be available at the door: $8 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. Students with GVR cards get in free.
