Director Crystal Morgan chose to stage this production for two reasons. First, the show’s large cast and pit orchestra allows for the participation of many students. Second, the show offers a story line that continues to be relevant today: workers’ rights. The added undercurrent of romance only adds to its relevance.
Performers Madeline Olexy (Babe) and Spencer Hall (Hines) are excited to present this show to the public. Olexy calls her character “amazing, strong, independent and powerful.” Hall, for whom The Pajama Game is his first show, says that he is playing someone who is “multidimensional: jealous, loving and demanding.” For Senior Catherine Galliford, The Pajama Game is her first opportunity to be a Stage Manager. She says that she and her crew of 15 have been having a great time working with the set and props of this show.
Mrs. Morgan is proud of how the cast, crew, and musicians have overcome the weather-related rehearsal disruptions since January to reach this point. She adds that the set construction help she has received from parents has been tremendous.
