“Play On!” proves that in the world of theater, occasionally nothing goes as planned. Everything you prepare and rehearse can fly out the window and chaos replaces order.
It appears this is an accurate message because the Olions Thespian Club, the Los Alamos High School drama club, experienced an obstacle during the Saturday performance of “Play On!”
One member of the cast, because of a prior commitment, was not able to appear during the first act. As a result, the ticket sales were put on hold, and a question, hung in the air; would the show go on?
Well, unlike the characters in “Play On!” the Olions know how to effectively handle a set back. An understudy, Chip Carter, filled the role of the actor Saul Watson. And for only having 45-minutes to prepare for the role, he did a really good job. The show did in fact go on without a hitch.
“Play On!” gives the audience a look of what goes on before the curtain goes up on opening night.
It’s not a pretty picture, but it sure is funny.
In the play, a local theater company is preparing for its production of “A Murder Most Foul.” It’s not going smoothly. The director is getting angry, the playwright is meddling and the actors are forgetting their lines.
