PLAY : Comedy and music to entertain

FROM PAGE 1
McMullen , a 2000 graduate of River View High School , is replacing recently retired Debbie English .
“ Band , choir and especially musicals are my top memories from high school ,” McMullen said . “ I have a great relationship with Mrs . English and when I realized we were moving back here I knew I wanted to help .”
She was in River View ’ s first production of “ Anything Goes ” in 2000 so she was already familiar with the play , which will be performed at 7:30 p . m . Friday , April 28 and Saturday , April 29 , in the auditorium at RVHS .
“ It ’ s not one of the more famous musicals , but it has music people will know and fun story lines ,” Mc- Mullen said .
Senior Morgan Lawrence plays the lead female in the play who is an evangelist turned night club singer .
“ This is my first production at River View ,” she said . “ I ’ ve been in others at the Triple Locks when I was younger and was in the ( orchestra ) pit one year here , but I decided to go for it since it was my senior year .”
Lawrence described her character , Reno Sweeney , as a strong independent person who built walls around herself , but breaks through them some during the production .
“ Everyone has been great to work with ,” Lawrence said . “ They understand that I might not know as much as others and need a little more help .”
Senior Hunter Holdsworth plays Moonface Martin Public Enemy # 13 .
“ I ’ m a want to be gangster ,” Holdsworth said . “ I don ’ t make a good one though because I ’ m clumsy . There ’ s a lot of comedy in this and I enjoy the uniqueness of my character .”
Jadyn Cline portrays Billy Crocker in “ Anything Goes .”
“ He ’ s a fun loving character and his songs have great vocals that fit me well ,” Cline said . “ I also like that his songs have meaningful lyrics .”
The RVHS senior can ’ t wait to put the play on for the community .
“ I like bringing joy to people ,” Cline said . “ We put in a lot of hard work and want people to see this . “ It ’ s a fun interactive show and we break the fourth wall a little bit .”
Like , Lawrence , Holdsworth has enjoyed working with the cast and crew .
“ Overall our music department is amazing and we have a great director ,” he said .

McMullen said there are 44 students on stage , 10 in the orchestra pit , 8-10 working backstage and several adult volunteers .
“ The kids have been really great ,” she said . “ I know it ’ s different working with someone else . Debbie ( English ) laid a wonderful foundation over the last 22 years and I ’ ve slowly been able to introduce new things I ’ ve found helpful over the years with my experiences .”
While English said she misses working with everyone , she knows the show is in very capable hands .
“ I ’ m still going to be around though helping with the tickets ,” she said . “ They can ’ t get rid of me that easily . I love the theater .”

“ Winners will be selected by people ’ s choice ,” said Anne Cornell , artistic director at the Pomerene Center . “ For $ 1 people will be given four tickets that are color coded and they can vote for their favorite in each category . Professionals can win $ 250 and the winners in the other three categories will receive $ 100 .”
A free draw area also will be set up for those who do not want to compete .
The evening also will include music on the artPARK concrete stage by The Committed , which features local artist Tanner Davis on the guitar , vendors , games and a car show .
Davis , a student at Ridgewood High School , travels to Cleveland every week to practice with his band mates who are from the Cleveland area .
“ We play mostly rock and roll and soul music and do covers ,” he said . “ I ’ m looking forward to having all of my friends around here get to see what I ’ ve been doing . A lot of people know I play the guitar , but haven ’ t seen what I do .”
After graduation Davis plans to continue working with Pete Skjold who builds bass guitars and continue playing music with his friends from Cleveland in hopes of getting gigs around there and possibly in Coshocton . The Committed will start playing at 6:30 p . m . and Davis said some of the cover songs they do are by Aretha Franklin and Joe Cocker .
“ There is something for every generation ,” he said .
Another activity planned for the artPARK that evening is the unveiling of the art piece students from Coshocton High School created .
Cornell is very thankful for everyone who has helped the students with their work of art
