Published 11:00 pm Thursday, March 14, 2013

The Charles Henderson High School theater department will present “Trouble Shooting for Teens” at 6 p.m. tonight and Saturday in the CHHS cafeteria. Tickets are $5 and will be available at the door.

Michalyn Hinson, drama teacher/production director, said “Trouble Shooting for Teens” is a comedy featuring Ken and Barbie, played by Greyson Motes and Lisa Baugh.

“This is a one-act play that is a series of short scenes,” Hinson said. “It’s funny and it’s fun. Ken, who has a huge male ego, has everyone else under his spell and they follow him around like puppies.”

The play is actually an infomercial with tips for teens on how to get out of sticky situations with their parents and friends and, maybe, with that first love.

The crew includes Sean Hopkins, acting coach; Laura Cain, stage manager; Zach Calhoun, lighting; Alex McLendon, makeup/set; Chelsea Carr, ticket sales; and Haylee Baggett, programs.

The CHHS theater department will present its largest production, “Oz” later in the spring.

“We would like to thank our families and the CHHS staff and administrator for their support,” Hinson said. “We would also like to thank Troy City Schools for providing the theater students of CHHS with a wonderful place to showcase their talents and our sponsors who have supported the theater program this year.”
