The Lathrop High Drama Department students will perform “Night at the Wax Museum” tonight and Saturday.
“(It’s) the hysterical meets the historical in the comic musical romp through the wackiest wax museum in history,” said Hali Rosen, who is directing the production.
General admission tickets (available at the door) are $8 and $6 for students with ID. Those with an ASB card will be admitted free.
Curtains for “Night at the Wax Museum” will open at 6:45 p.m. on both days — performances are also scheduled for April 10 through 12 at those same times.
The Manteca Unified campus is located at 647 Spartan Way in Lathrop.
The “Night at the Wax Museum” involves first-year teacher Heather Fairchild arranging for six students who are re-taking History in summer school visiting the new wax museum thanks to help from her two aunts.
These students are also clueless about history and suffer from boredom upon seeing the likes of Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile, along with Henry the VIII, Anne Boleyn, Founding Father John Adams, and the notorious Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid and Blackbeard.
“And why is Lizzie Borden lurking in the since the aunts say they never had a wax figure of her,” Rosen asked.
