ACHS Drama Club presents play, Bad Hair Day

Click on headline for review with photo(s)

By April Sheppard

The ACHS Drama Class presented playwright R. Eugene Jackson's, Bad Hair Day, on April 25, 2013. The play followed the comical capers of three students determined to undermine the diabolical plan of Hilda Von Dandruff who is distributing free samples of a tingly, bubbly shampoo that causes hair loss. With outrageous hair-dos, bald heads and wacky characters, the play was nothing short of hair-raising!

The production was under the direction of drama teacher, Joanne Held. Cast members included Malayna Alexander, Tyler Carter, Jordan Coomer, Terica Derringer, Jayce Grant, Beau Harrison, Levi Hausdorfer, Chris Hobaugh, Ben Holt, Sam Locker, Tabitha Mann, Destiny Mardis, Allison Owens, Matt Owens, Kyle Powell, Matt Rogers, Harlee Smock, Jessi Taylor, Spring Taylor, Julia Wallace and Blaze Wooten.

Crew members were Tyler Burton, Carrissa Carter, Cindy Eaton, Whitney Frost, Brandie Merritt, Travis Richardson, Katrina Rogers and Samantha Roszak. - April Sheppard
