Wildcat Theatre ready to transform PAC into Humbug High

Dickens' popular Christmas story warning of the perils of greed and callous disregard for the well-being of mankind is coming to PAC.

Charles Dickens’ popular Christmas story warning of the perils of greed and callous disregard for the well-being of mankind is coming to the Performing Arts Centre, with a few twists.

A Christmas Carol – Highschool Style is “Christmas Carol meets Mean Girls,” director Samantha Mielke said. The bah-hum-bug Ebenezer Scrooge is replaced by the popular but mean Meredith Priestly, who gets a lesson in the value of kindness and friendship on Christmas eve.

Students put on the production from top to bottom, with students on stage and behind the curtain, making everything work.

Students have been piecing together costumes, memorizing lines and building the set for the past month, readying themselves for the debut next week. The production features William E. Hay Campus students from grades 9-12.

The performances put on by Wildcat Theatre gives students a chance to learn about all aspects of theatre production, from on-stage performances, lighting, set design, costume design, sound and backstage work.

Mielke said the students have been working hard and, after a the few, final full-dress rehearsals, will be ready to perform for the crowds.

Tickets have been selling steadily, Mielke said, though some are still available. They can be purchased at the high school office or at Wells Furniture.

The show runs Dec. 3-5, with all productions beginning at 7:30 p.m. The Friday, Dec. 4 show is a dinner theatre with food served at 6 p.m., and then guests are escorted into the PAC from the cafeteria by cast and crew.
