Repertory theatre class puts on “Check, Please!”

The show, a comedy about having bad dates, was staged Tuesday, Nov. 28 and Wednesday, Nov. 29

The repertory theatre class performed their fall play “Check, Please!” Tuesday, Nov. 28 and Wednesday Nov. 29. The show is a comedy about bad dates.

Junior Miranda Hakes, who played Kim, Donna, and Celeste in the show, explains the story behind the play.

“It’s a guy and girl, they were dating, but they broke up,” Hakes said. “So they want to get back out into the dating scene so they go on first dates, but they all just end up going terrible.”

Since “Check, Please!” is performed by the repertory theatre class, putting this show on looks a little different than a mainstage schoolwide production. The show is performed in the little theater and does not have reserved seating. The process for getting a part in the show is also different, according to junior Christina Baumgart, who plays Girl.

“You have to audition for the rep class and after you get in that you have to do another audition,” Baumgart said. “You’re placed in either one of the two shows going on that semester.”

The other repertory theater class will stage “Mamma Mia!” Dec. 4-9. Hakes explains how “Check, Please!” is different from the other class’s show.

“There are fewer people and then this one’s student directed,” Hakes said.

Junior Gabe Coleman, who plays Dan, Hank and Louis, explains the rehearsal process for the show

“The rehearsal process has just involved going to Mr. Copeland’s classroom and running lines and running scenes,” Coleman said.

Baumgart elaborated, saying they just practice in Copeland’s classroom during school, instead of the afterschool rehearsals for the mainstage productions.

“We basically go down to Copeland’s classroom during class every day,” Baumgart said. “We run this big run through the scenes with the other person. We block the scenes and we memorize our lines and just repeat that.”

Students interested in seeing the repertory theater class’s next show, “Mamma Mia!,” can purchase tickets on the school’s Go Fan page.
