While the Kaatza Lakeside Players’ latest project, Cosi, hits stages this week, another group of actors will continue rehearsing for their June 3 performance of Glee.
“I learned everything I know from Dena McPhee,” Glee’s artistic director Mary Egan said, of the Kaatza Lakeside Players’ artistic director, adding that Glee will be dedicated to McPhee.
Glee is a humorous musical play, written by local student Lauren Frost. It’s a story about unique personalities, with plenty of musical performances intermingled within the story.
The actors are all local, and are between the ages of 10 and 22.
“It’s a big cast and they all have lines,” Egan said. “They all have ideas.”
With eight weeks until opening night, the group is hard at work during weekly rehearsals at Centennial Hall. As opening night gets closer, Egan plans on donating additional slots of time at her studio for extra practices.
