MPHS Theatre Department presents fall production
The Theatre Department of Mt. Pleasant High School announces Whale Music, by Anthony Minghella, as their first production of the year.
This play is in the 1980s and touches on mildly adult topics through scenes depicted in an acutely sensitive, moving portrayal of the lives of a group of women, reflecting the attitudes and feelings of women today, described in a series of settings that flow gently into each other.
Caroline, pregnant by one of her boyfriends, escapes to her seaside birthplace, where friends visit her. The reaction of these women to each other while awaiting the baby Caroline’s birth, whose intentions are to give up for adoption, is sympathetically told. We become involved in the heights and depths of their collective emotions and thoughts as they deal with love, loss, and the choices faced by young women today.
The cast of Whale Music includes Lexie Humber as Caroline, Silvia Sustaita as Stella, Reese Loving as Fran, Pearl Murillo as Kate, and Dani Palomo as D. Also appearing in the cast are Percy Buendia, Madison McNeil, and Summer Murillo.
Performances are 7:00 pm on November 12, 17, and 19 at the High School Auditorium. Admission is $5 for adults and $2 for students.
We enforce social distancing, and masks are required. We hope you will join us for this emotional and beautiful play.
