The Sycamore High School Theatre Department will present its winter play, “The Babbling Brooks,” by Kurtz Gordon, next week.
The play is the story of the Brooks family and the chaos that surrounds them. Nettie Brooks simply cannot hear a bit of gossip without relaying it grossly exaggerated to her neighbors, and her daughter uses this as a source for her neighborhood newspaper that stirs a whole lot of problems. Add to this the teenage children who are in the throes of puppy love and a mysterious murder to add to the excitement.
The cast includes Brigid Crawford, Paige Harrington, Dustin King, Whitney Munro, Lauren Duvall, Jordan Peterson, David Boyer, Victoria Smith, Noah Brock, Annabell Castillo, Adrianna Acosta, Candace Reynolds, Kianna Thompson, Marly Richards, Thomas Phetmeuangmay and Kailey Munro.
The play is directed by Natalie Boone. The technical director is David Olson and the assistant technical directors are Ralph Helm and Kirsten Erickson.
The student technical staff includes Madelyn Loellke, Samantha Butkus, Jake Pisarski, Shekinah Bergmann, Corrin Neises, Jordyn Schulz, Cameron Smith, Alison Labee, Awad Rona and Izzy Johnson.
“The Babbling Brooks” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 14 through 16 at the Sycamore High School Auditorium.
Tickets cost $6 and can be purchased at the box office in the high school lobby from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Feb. 7 and 12.
