Led by director Bob Gregory-Bjorklund, Northfield High School students are ready to debut this year's fall play, The Death and Life of Sneaky Fitch.
Gregory-Bjorklund invited Northfield Patch to stop by and take in a recent rehearsal; photos from that rehearsal are attached to this post.
The play is describe as:
A parody of the Old West—the Old, Old West.
To the good folks of the mythical town of Gopher Gulch, Sneaky Fitch is the town bum—a disgrace to all—until he, apparently, dies and comes back to life. How do you confront someone who's come back from the dead, who was formerly despised but is now invincible? And how will it all end?
Full of stock western characters that parody the TV series Gunsmoke, this show delivers a fun-filled evening, more comedy than tragedy.
The show opens 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2, at the high school auditorium, with additional shows scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Nov. 3, 9 and 10.
Tickes are $7 for adults and $5 for students and can be purchased ahead of time at the NHS Office or at the door before the show.
