PHS Theatre Guild performed their fall play Thursday and Friday night. The play, Lend Me A Tenor, got big laughs and rave reviews from the audiences. Under the direction of PHS teacher, Mr. Morman, the Theatre Guild rehearsed the play for several months before its two day run. The cast and crew worked hard to provide a truly memorable performance! "This has been a very fun and exciting play to direct. I knew that for my third play I wanted to do something a bit more challenging with the set. A hotel suite with six doors definitely presented a challenge! I am happy to say that we have met the challenge. In addition to creating a more intricate set, I wanted to perform a face paced comedy with nonstop action. Lend Me A Tenor is one of the best examples of door-slamming farce in addition to being a very hilarious show. It is one of the most popular high school plays in the United States and for good reason. This has been a great show to direct with a terrific bunch of actors , actresses and crew," says director, Mr. Morman. GREAT JOB, TIGERS!
