Valley High School’s Play to Honor Life of Shirley Temple
AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va (WVIR) -
Wilson Memorial High School’s spring show, 1940s Shirley Temple classic "Kiss and Tell,” opens Friday night.
The play's director, Stephen Winslow, says it offers something for the whole family.
The cast, which includes students and a couple of teachers, first began reading over their lines in January. Now, the group is thrilled to captivate the audience and honor the life of Shirley Temple, who died just a couple of months ago.
The performance is set in 1943. Winslow says the work centers around family values, connections between people, and relationships that are close to the heart. He says the production approaches these deep topics in an innocent and at times playful and farcical way. The pace is intended to move along quickly.
He says the cast has invested many long hours into getting things right, and they hope to showcase their best work.
"I've been doing this for about 17 years now, and I could not describe to you a more special group of people that I've ever been around. I really love these kids, and they have given this everything that they've got,” Winslow said.
"Kiss and Tell" premieres Friday night at 7 p.m. in Wilson Memorial High School’s auditorium. The show also takes place the same time Saturday night.
General admission costs $8, and reserved seating costs $10 per ticket.
Children under 12 and students at the high school are only charged $5.
