Directed by Jeffrey Roets, “Sister Act” will be featured as Wethersfield High School’s Spring Musical on March 10th and 11th at 7:30 p.m. both nights, and at 2:30 p.m. on March 11.
Commenting on the play's strengths and weaknesses so far, Roets said, “Our strengths are that we have some really good singers this year, but because we are a week away from production, at this point all I see is weaknesses because I feel like we are not where we should be. I’m like this every single year and every single year it always comes together which is why I panic.”
Directing a play definitely has its perks, but stage manager Jocelyn Wilcox says the most challenging thing about working backstage is “coordinating everything so that it flows. The point of the crew is to really make the audience feel like they’re in a story or movie, rather than a live production, and it can be challenging sometimes.”
Roets’ and Wilcox’s main goal is to create a connection that moves the audience, and to make sure everything flows perfectly for the final production.
If you would like to watch Sister Act come to the Wethersfield Auditorium on March 10th or 11th at 7:30 pm and March 11 at 2:30 pm.
