DENMARK Senior High school students are putting the final touches to this year’s public drama production, Happy Days.
The show, loosely based on the television sitcom of the 70s and 80s, showcases the talents of 74 students from years 7-12.
Director and school drama teacher Debra Edmondson said that the show was a delight, with songs everyone knows, wonderful music and great costumes. “We are lucky to have such a dedicated and talented group of kids in Denmark who put their all into making the show work,” Ms Edmondson said.
Happy Days is set in a diner in the 1950s, and proved to be an education for the local students, most of whom had to learn what bobby socks, petticoats and high pony tails were, to get into character. The music is an eclectic mix of ‘50s classics through to modern songs young people are more familiar with, and the storyline follows the characters on a journey to help a community beat the bad guys.
The show will be at the civic centre from August 1-3. Evening tickets include a bar, and a meal at intermission.
Tickets have been selling like hotcakes, but there are some left at www.trybooking.com
