McLean High School's fall production will be, The Good Doctor, a comedy by Neil Simon about Anton Chekhov's life. The play consists of many short vignettes about Chekov's personal experiences throughout his life and stories that he wrote. The director, Denise Perrino, picked the play. "I read through lots of plays and decided that a comedy would be better to do than a serious play because for the past couple of years we have done more serious plays," she said.
The actors are eager to do the play and feel that it will be a unique and exciting experience.
Students in the Theatre Three/Four class participated in Katrina Aid at Hayfield High School on the Sept. 24. The show raised over $45,000 for the victims of Katrina that relocated to the Washington, D.C. area.
An annual tradition of McLean High School theatre is the One Acts Festival, where the shows are both written and directed by students for students. This year, due to the overwhelming talent in the McLean High School Theatre department, this year's will be the best ever.
The Cappies show that McLean High School will be performing is, Our Town. Like the Cappies show McLean put on a few years ago, David and Lisa, it will be performed in the Black Box. The show will run from the end of March to the beginning of April.
