The children’s musical (opening this Friday April 13th, and running through Saturday April 28th) tells of Rudy Grunch (played by Alejandro Manzo), a grumpy 6th grader who always feels like an outsider. When the entire school gets excited about the annual school musical, he comes up with a perfect plan to ruin it for everyone. But will the spirit of theatre prevail?
Produced by Adrienne Summers, Shanon Romiti, and Jenny Arbizu, the 60-minute show features a cast of children ages 8 to 14 years old. The show is directed by Dena Gregory, with choreography by Betsy Molchan and vocal direction by Kayla Murphy.
The cast is made up of 36 talented kids who were selected from 70 children who had auditioned in February. Gregory says she was “thrilled” to see that many children interested in trying out. “It's been exciting seeing them come together as a cast,” Gregory says. “Their enthusiasm and positive attitudes have made this production a pleasure to direct.”
“The Grunch” will be performing weekends from Friday, April 13 through Saturday, April 28, with Friday and Saturday shows at 7pm and Sunday matinees at 2pm.
