GUILFORD, Maine — The Performing Pirates will stage the drama “Ghost Light’’ at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 9, at Piscataquis Community High School.
In the play, characters Sal and Jenny had always dreamed of owning their own theater, and when Jenny’s Great-uncle Albert dies, as his sole surviving family member Jenny inherits the run-down Majestic Theatre. The couple go through the tough obstacles of trying to get the old theater up and running. A plot to try to scare the cast right out the door is hatched, but two ghosts have a different idea.
Admission is $4 for adults and $3 for students.
The students will present “Ghost Light’’ again on Friday, March 11, at Skowhegan High School at the Maine Principal’s Association Drama Festival competition. High School students from all over the state will perform at several sites around the state on Friday night, Saturday afternoon and Saturday night. The performances are judged, regional winners are chosen, and those schools will go onto the division finals on March 25 and 26.
The Pirates will perform Friday evening in the first of three sessions held at Skowhegan High School. The public is invited for an evening of performances by students from Guilford, MCI and
Lincoln Academy beginning at 6:30 p.m. March 11 at the Skowhegan school.
