Don’t forget: the Perry High School Drama Department’s fall play opens tonight, and the community only has two chances to take in “The Only Thing Between Me and Total Awesomeness.”

Director Randy Peterson says the show is made up of several short skits around the central theme, which allows each member of the large ensemble cast their time in the spotlight. He adds, this play has a special significance to the students, because they were actually the ones who picked it. Peterson encourages the public to attend the production, mostly so they can see the overall acting ability of the students in a way they never could before with a typical show. “I’ve got a very talented cast of actors here. And so if you come see this show, you’ll see a bunch of very talented high school students just having fun, playing around. And I think that’ll be a pretty enjoyable experience for everybody.”

The play will be performed tonight and tomorrow at 7 p.m., with the doors opening at 6:30. The cost is $5 per ticket and there is assigned seating, so Peterson encourages audience members to either get their tickets ahead of time or get to the door early in order to get the seats they want.
