By Tim Greco

Shows of The Great All- American Musical Disaster Tickets are set for May 31 and June 1 at 7 p.m. in the Haldane School Auditorium. Tickets are $15 general/$5 students and seniors.

If you are looking for a funny time that the theater, The Great All American Musical Disaster is a not-tobemissed Haldane Middle School production and it has something for everybody! You are in for a treat, as the great Martha Mechalakos has another hit under her belt.

Mechalakos has put great effort into this play as she had basically has handled all aspects of this production, including directing, props and costumes. A total of 55 students are involved with this very funny play. Mechalakos said, “All the characters are broadly drawn and it gives the actors something to sink their teeth into.”

Sixth and 7th grade students are hard at work rehearsing their roles for this full-length comedy and farce by Tim Kelly. All the parts give a comic sweep to the legend that is Hollywood. This is a laugh out loud tale of an unscrupulous movie producer who insidiously cons six major stars (via six different scripts) into believing they are each the star of an upcoming movie, and by crafty shooting-schedules keeps them fooled until the movie’s made.

Set in the 1970s, the story involves down on your luck film producer Junior Dover. Junior hasn’t made a picture since his last flop, “Zombies of the Stratosphere,” but his latest project has everything.
