Fresh out of summer vacation, Lake Central thespians are eager to get back on the stage. In late August, it was announced that the fall production would be The Harvey Girls.

“It’s about a restaurant in the Southwest along the railroad tracks and all the crazy events that happen there when people get off the train to take a break and get a good meal,” Mr. Ray Palasz, English, said.

A Western Comedy by Julie Jensen, this show is sure to stir up a wide array of emotions. Lake Central’s adaptation of this show has been a long time coming. Working on it since August, the cast and crew have grown and worked together to try and make this show a success.

“This has actually been a really fun production to work on. This may very well go down as one of my favorite shows to work on because of all of the people and the characters,” Palasz said.

Not only is the director excited to see the show, but the hard-working cast and crew members are prepared and ready to take the stage.

“I’m really excited for the fall show, because we’ve been putting so much hard work into it and I’ve been putting a lot of work into it having the lead role, and it’s just going to be really awesome having that ‘yes, we did it!’ moment on stage when you see everything come together,” Alyssa Graziani (11) said.

The Harvey Girls opens this Friday, Nov. 2. Other performance dates include the Nov. 3, 9 and 10 in the Lake Central Auditorium starting at 7 p.m. The cost is $9 for adults, $7 for students and seniors 60+, $5 for children 12 and under, and free for all LCSC employees with an LC ID.
