Love and politics blend together in “The Star Spangled Girl,” a play that will be presented by the C.M. Russell High School Drama Department this week.
“The Star Spangled Girl” is a comedic play written by Neil Simon, which takes place in 1960’s San Francisco.
The play revolves around two radical roommates, Andy and Norman, who are barely making a living working on their protest magazine.
At the same time, all-American girl Sophie moves in to the apartment next door and shakes up the roommates’ relationship with a love triangle.
Taylor Coon, who plays Sophie in the play, said, “It is a hilarious production, as Sophie it’s really, really fun to play, I’ve had a blast being with the cast and it’s definitely worth seeing.”
She added the play is a good time for people of all ages.
“The Star Spangled Girl” will be put on by the CMR Drama Department from May 9-11 with curtain time at 7:30 p.m.
There will also be a special understudy matinee on Saturday, May 11 at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $6 for students and senior citizens and $8 for general admission. For ticket information, you can call 268-6117.
