It takes a lot to get to Scotland’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival — and New Rochelle High School’s TheaterWorks kids should know: In August, the high school will send its third cast to the American High School Theater Festival that is part of the Fringe.
Theatre Works presented “Hair” in 2003 and “The Cradle Will Rock” in 2006. This summer, it’s “Saving Seatown: The Underwater Superhero Musical,” which began as a senior project created by students of the high school’s PAVE Theater program. It has been expanded into a full-length musical by two of the former students, Paul Rigano and Katy Weiller.
You can see what Scottish audiences will see, months in advance, when “Seatown” gets it American premiere, at New Rochelle’s Linda Kelly Theatre April 28 through May 1.
To help get the cast to Edinburgh, members of Theater Works will hold their annual dinner-theater fundraiser at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 3, 4, and 5.
For $15 ($12 for students and seniors), patrons will get dinner (chicken, pasta, salad, soda or water, coffee or tea and dessert) and a cabaret show, followed by a performance of Alan Haehnel’s comedy “The Idiot’s Guide to High School,” billed as “a humorous review of high school’s pratfalls.”
The dinner and cabaret are in the cafeteria in the school’s new wing. The performance is across the hall in the intimate Linda Kelly Theater.
