WEEPING WATER – Weeping Water students are planning to create positive memories on stage with a play based on the premise of inaccurate recollections.
WWHS teenagers are performing “That’s Not How I Remember It” by Don Zolidis during the one-act play season. The Indians delivered their first public performance Thursday night in the Weeping Water auditorium.
The script focuses on a married couple as they are sitting on their couch. The husband and wife have different memories about how they met back in the 1980s. Audience members watch multiple re-enactments of scenes based on how the husband and wife remember them. Students wear 1980s clothes and makeup and use many catchphrases and props that were common 35 years ago.
Taylor Essary and Tristin Brill are the two seniors in the cast. Kaylee Tighe, Liberty Cozad and Chrystal Meyer are juniors on the stage, and AnnaBell Murphy, Kayden Tummons, Luke Meredith, Rebecca Adams, Jason Burch, Jackson Flanagan, Erin Redfern, Zack Smith, Reba Wilson, Trey Lamkins and Kyle Baxter are sophomores. Freshmen Ciera Dieter and Aiden Linden are both members of the cast list.
Senior Bobbi Ritzman, sophomores Izzabelle Kerr and Abigail Porter and freshman Clayton Cronk are members of the stage crew. Tory Nixon is director of the play and Kate Endorf is assistant director.
Weeping Water will present “That’s Not How I Remember It” on several other dates this fall. The Indians will take part in the East Central Nebraska Conference Invite at the Lofte Theatre on Tuesday, Nov. 13. Weeping Water will perform at 9:15 a.m.
