Student Writes, Directs and Acts in Spotlighter Play

Clever plot twists make the GIHS Spotlighter’s production "Misdirection" suitable for school-age children and their families on Friday, May 10 at 7:30 p.m. and two performances on Saturday, May 11 at 1 and 7:30 p.m.

This play is the culmination of two years of work by GIHS senior Sara Gorton who asked Spotlighter advisor Maggie Kennedy two years ago if she could write and direct her own show in her senior year. Sara is also in the cast, along with Caity Kleinschmidt, Ryan Michki, Madison MacNeil, Brenden Budnik, Grace Wenner, Patrick Loss and others who all bring Sara’s written characters to life.

Tickets are $2 for adults, $1 for students.  

In addition, set your DVR's to record Ch. 7 AM Buffalo at 10 a.m. on Thursday May 9. Host Linda Pelligrino will interview Sara, Caity Kleinschmidt, Joe Cali and Madison MacNeil.
