April 15 marks the grand opening of the RSS Drama class’s newest comedy/action play, the Clumsy Custard Horror Show and Ice Cream Clone Review. “It is appropriate for all ages so parents don’t hesitate to bring the kids,” declares cast-member Brogan Pastro. The play is set in the land of Zob. The action begins when the Princess is kidnapped by the Ice Cream Clones (Dacron’s Agents). Swashbuck, the hero, sets off to rescue her but everything goes wrong. What fate awaits Swashbuck in the land of Zob? Go to the play and find out.

“I play Worfle, a big, fuzzy, three horned monster,” says Pastro. “He is the main character’s sidekick. He is the brains of the operation.” Other characters featured in this theatrical piece are Arnis Boheme ( Narrator) played by both Ali Greene and Emily Steiner, Swashbuck Val Periso (Main Character) played by Jordan Pommer, Evil Lord Dacron played by Aaron Boss, and the Princess whose role is split between Sharmila Miller and Nicole Abernathy.

“There are a plethora of other characters,” adds Pastro, “[such as] Alphasia, Malforce, and the Ice Cream Clones.” Pastro shares some very optimistic comments regarding the Clumsy Custard Horror Show and Ice Cream Clone Review. “[My] favourite part of the play is the audience involvement. I’ve never been in a play with so much audience involvement,” was one such comment.

When asked how the rehearsals went, he responded, “ I think it’s been going great! Everyone’s having fun and we’ve all been working hard. [We] have been rehearsing almost every day after school. This shows how much time we’ve put into it. This will be a great play.”

The performance is scheduled to play on April 15, 16, 20, and 21 at 7:00 pm at the RSS gym. Tickets are $7 for kids and seniors and $8 for adults. They can be purchased at the door but it is recommended that you buy yours in advance from a senior RSS cast member or from Ms. Lisa Henderson at RSS.
