GRANGEVILLE What happens when you pair an obnoxious cowgirl with a citified mama’s boy? A self-deprecating young man with an assertive young woman? An opera loving fellow with a girl who has a penchant for rock and roll? You have Lotto Date.
Grangeville High School students bring to life the love and luck of a modern dating game in this play by Jerry Rabushka. The play will be presented this week, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Feb. 15, 16 and 17, 6 p.m. each night. The cost per person is $5.
“Lotto Date — where love is left to chance, and chance is what we love,” spouted show host Juke Rocker, played by Hunter Pilant.
Throw in haughty co-host Aphrodite Gonzalez – played by Cat Musick – facing cutthroat journalist Priscilla Valentine (Clarissa Stevens) and its constant commentary in this “reality” show, dotted with commercials throughout.
The play is directed by GHS teacher Katina Davis and technical help is being provided by students Kevin Finnegan, David Palmaymesa and Brandon Vetter. Set painting was done by students Kaitlyn Spets and Allie Kohrman.
Full cast is as follows (in order of appearance):
Lariope-Anastasia Bearden; Cassie-Kaycee Hodges; Xanthus-Jordan Reuter; Quenton-Adam Wonnacott; Sapho-Kelsey Pilant; Juke Rocker-Hunter Pilant; Zak-Adrian Ramirez; Aphrodite Gonzalez-Cat Musick; Priscilla Valentine-Clarissa Stevens; Nora-Allie Kohrman; Greg-Jared Nopens; Gina/Marleise-Victoria Bearden; Charlie-Nathan Reuter; Old Woman-Scottie Calhoun; Mother-Ariya Darwish; Usher-Aiden Acton; Guy-Andrew Beene; Girl-Allie Smith.
