Get your freak on at Rifle High School Drama Club performances

Rifle High School Drama Club will present "SuperFreaks," written by Scott Haan and produced by special arrangement with Eldridge Publishing Co. The show will be performed Nov. 1-3. Curtain time is 7 p.m. Matinee shows are set for 2 p.m. on Nov. 2-3. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for youth under 18 and seniors.

On opening night, the high school art department will host "A Night of the Arts," to showcase students artwork, and include concessions and fundraising events.

"SuperFreaks" takes place in a mental institution, where the inmates believe they are real super heroes. The show opens with Speed Freak running around the stage, only to be scared by the reporter, Lois Lancaster, who he nearly attacks with karate chops. Lois interviews the inmates, who she believes to be crazy, until something unexpected happens that causes her to wonder.

The high school drama club is producing the play, under the guidance of a new director, Tiffany Brinkman, from Jackson, Mich.

The play was double casted, so more students had the opportunity to be on stage:

• Carsyn Copeland and

Haley Budau as Mental

• Brett Christensen and

Ryan Imondi as Speed Freak

• Shannon Rossilli and

Abby Bernat as Lois Lancaster

• Hannah Prunty and

Mckinley Phillips as Dr. Eisner

• Elijah Birstrom and

Colby Rennie as Kevin

• Austin Kennedy and

Dylan Lauffer as Dimbulb

•Makayzia Counts,

assistant director

•Bailey Stephens, stage manager

•Sarah Voight, Jacobi Cooley,

Ira Kest, techies

The club plans to host new events this year, such as a lip synching contest in February, a series of one-act plays directed by seniors this spring, coffee houses and a night of improvisation, murder mystery dinner parties, and an acting workshop for elementary and middle school students. Most of these events will be fundraisers for new stage curtains.
