The Chase County Schools’ one-act play is coming up, and the comedy should provide instructive.
“How to Kiss a Girl,” by Wade Bradford, is set in the future and features 14 characters.
It will be shown to the public April 19 at 7 p.m. and April 20 at 7:30 p.m. in the school auditorium.
When young Ken Beardsley gets ready for his very first date, he decides to download audio advice from across the centuries in order to impress his high school crush, Stephanie.
However, the dating tips he gets from such desparate characters as a swashbuckling pirate, a sweet southern belle and a puritanical pilgrim quickly sabotage his date.
Poor Ken realizes that if he really wants to win Steph’s heart, he’ll need to tune out his smartphone and tune in to his own instincts before it’s too late.
The cast includes Jake Lueth as Kenneth; Ryelee Christensen as the voice of the smartphone; Bridgette Odens as Modern Girl; Jade Allen as Mom; Emma Bauerle as Cowgirl;
Kaylee Meeske as Disco Girl and Driver; Hunter Bartels as Mr. Gently; Tagan Mays as a pirate; Kelly Christensen as a true southern belle; Jack Bauerle as Dad;
Rose Sullivan as a pilgrim, Kadyn Milner as Stephanie and Josie Peterson as a waitress with a crush on Kenneth.
The production is free to the public, but Director Jill Bauerle said free will donations will help with the cost of the scripts.
