The RFH Tower Players will present Elton John and Tim Rice’s AIDA: School Edition, “a contemporary musical take on a grand classic tale” based on the Verdi opera on March 22, 23, and 24. The story centers on Aida, a Nubian princess who becomes enslaved by Radames, an Egyptian soldier. A forbidden love blossoms between them, and their example of devotion eventually transcends the differences in their status and their warring nations and leads to a time of peace and prosperity. Audiences of all ages will be delighted by the memorable score, exciting production numbers and African tribal percussion on stage.
This production features a cast of many talented students including Clare Fitzgerald as Aida joined by Harrison Best as Radames, Julia Mosby as Amneris and Jack Newsome as Mereb. The Tower Players promise to provide an exciting night of musical theater that should not be missed. Performances are Friday, March 22nd and Saturday, March 23rd at 7:30 p.m. The final performance will be a matinee on Sunday, March 24th at 1:00 p.m. Tickets are $10.00 for adults and $6.00 for students and senior citizens.
