After last year’s successful Grease production, Wildcat Theatre is ready to show another musical, Back to the 80’s.

Staff and students have been preparing for the musical for the past three months. The show will run from Nov. 20 to 23.

Shows start at 7:30 p.m., with the exception of the Nov. 23, with an afternoon show set for 2:30 p.m.

Tickets prices are $15 for adults and $10 for seniors and students. Tickets are available at William E. Hay and Wells Furniture.

“It is going to be a fun night for everyone coming out, so come and see us,” said director Darren Fleischhacker.

With more than 50 people participating in the event, much preparation that has gone into the event.

“I think it’s going pretty well, said Amy Stratulate, one of the lead actresses. “We’ve stayed on schedule, which is surprising. We usually end up cramming everything in.”

Students have taken on many of the roles of the play, from acting, stage managers, lighting and many more.

“The set is wonderfully done by the construction people, led by Gord Goodrich, so I am excited for it,” said Shea Heatherington, an assistant director, choreographer, and chorus and dance member.

“All the songs are catchy and well-loved.”

Stettler Middle School vice-principal Jeff Lee is acting in the play with two of his sons, Aaron and Jordan. Jeff Lee is playing the character that is reflecting on his high school years. Aaron Lee plays the kid in high school.

“I grew up in the 80’s and graduated in the 80’s, so it’s not that big of a stretch of a role,” Jeff Lee said.

“It’s awesome. It’s a very talented group of kids. They seem very motivated and dedicated and want to a do a great job. It’s just great. They’ve got some interesting characters and some interesting songs. They are songs that I grew up with … I like that part.”

Jordan Lee is playing guitar for the musical. Aaron Lee is one of the lead actors.

“I need to be in this,” said Aaron Lee. “because I love the 80’s more than anything. It’s my favourite decade.

“I don’t mind my dad being in the musical. He doesn’t bug me very much. He keeps me on top of my lines. Jordan’s OK when we’re here, and his witty comments are enjoyable. But overall, it’s pretty cool.”
