Horace Greeley High School Class of 2018 presents "DISASTER! with the first of four performances on Thursday, March 22 at 7 p.m. in Chappaqua.
The year is 1979 and the hippest floating discotheque and casino is about to open. It’s not too late to get on board. But be careful, because earthquakes, tidal waves and burning infernos await.
Plus, there’s romance, intrigue, sharks, rats, and more than a hundred other guests on board.
This is “DISASTER!” a hilarious homage to the '70s complete with bell bottoms, feathered hair, and the music of a generation.
Director Lee Kasper said: “I love all of the music in Disaster! Moment to moment, each song is one that the audience will love to hear and will be excited to learn how it has been contextualized for the show.”
Cast member Katie Katz said, “We are all so excited to be a part of this and the audience will love to hear these classic songs delivered in a whole new way.”
Violet Gautreau portrays Jackie, the nightclub singer, and tells us that she "loves the opportunity to do something I love with the entire class.”
And John Admundsen, who plays Chad, said, “It’s great to be part of this community and it has been a joy to spend time with the senior class throughout the rehearsal process.”
Cast member Ashley Wachtfogel said, “Disaster! is fun and upbeat, and everyone will really get into the music, especially our parents.”
And Chase Sullivan, who plays Tony, the nightclub owner, says, “The show is crazy, unexpected entertainment.”
Choreographer Jesse Pellegrino said he "loves the 70’s vibe and teaching the kids to embrace the style of dance, which was new to all of them, was a blast.”
More than 150 students are participating as cast members, crew, pit band, assistant directors, choreographers, make-up artists and costume designers.
Since auditions, the cast and crew of this show have had to deal with many real disasters such as nor’easters, canceled rehearsals, no power and closed roads.
