Part of the reason the Monrovia Unified School District produces professional productions for the community is to give Monrovia students the chance to interact with professionals in the drama community. The next production, “Sister Act,” is no exception. Not only will students from the Theater Conservatory at Monrovia High School (MHS) take part as the stage crew under the guidance of Roger Castellanos, but two MHS freshmen are in the cast as well.
These two young women are Sophia Lee and Kyihilee Zamora who will make up part of the ensemble in the production taking on many roles. They will be working with Leah Stewart, Delores Van Cartier/Sister Mary Clarence, and Keely Milliken who will portray Mother Superior. They are under the direction of Roger Castellano who is also doing the choreography with musical direction by Graham Jackson. The production will be at the Taylor Performing Arts Center at Monrovia High School, 845 West Colorado Blvd.
This production will run over the first weekend in December, Friday Dec. 6 at 8 p.m., Dec. 7 at both 2 and 8 p.m. and on Dec. 8 at 5 p.m. General admission tickets purchased in advance are only $25 with VIP seating available at $35. Group tickets are only $20 as are seniors. Student tickets cost $15. These tickets are available via brownpapertickets.com. Tickets, with the exception of VIP tickets, are only $10 for all seats at the Saturday matinee (this is real bargain for a family). All tickets are $5 more per category if purchased at the door.
Tickets can also be purchased at Monrovia Travel, 401 S. Myrtle and at the District Office at 325 E. Huntington Drive. For further information check lktaylorperfomingarts.com or call Jackie Guerrero at (626)471-2032.
