For those who don’t know the play, it is a quiet, rather philosophical work about life in a small town much like ours, and the humor is subtle. Hundreds of high school students all together in the auditorium do not always make for an attentive audience, and I know I was not the only staff member a bit concerned how this would work out. Well, our kids rose to the occasion and it worked out very well indeed.
As director Elizabeth Nelson said in the question-and-answer session after the play, theater really only needs two things, actors and an audience. As always, the First City Players actors—as well as the sound, lighting, sets, costumes, and music-- were superb, but so was this high school audience. For much of the play, you could have heard a pin drop! The students were listening and understanding, got all of the jokes, and asked excellent questions after the play. Thanks First City Players! Thank you, students!
