HALEYVILLE - There are “no substitutes” for the entertainment provided each year in Haleyville High School’s senior play, and this year should be no exception.
The Class of 2023 will present the play “No Substitutes” for the public Saturday, March 11, at 7 p.m. at the Haleyville Elementary School cafetorium. Tickets will be available at the door for $8.
Haleyville Elementary and Haleyville Middle School students will be watching the play earlier in the week prior to the public performance Saturday.
Play director and HHS band director Reggie Tolbert is having a great time rehearsing with this year’s seniors, preparing them for their theatrical debut as a group. The play, which will be comedic, revolves around a school system having to scramble to find qualified substitute teachers after the state pulls all substitute teacher funding.
“We have some terrific talent portraying some eclectic characters that are recruited to be substitute teachers,” Tolbert noted.
Approximately 50 seniors are involved in this year’s play, including cast and crew. Haleyville Elementary School music teacher Jessica Rice is assisting Tolbert with the play.
Students involved in the production are: Nate Loveless, Sarah Knight, Anna Rogers, Lane Elkins, Michael Atkins, Heaven McDonald, Myla Brown, Rachael Galloway, Savannah Brown, Zac Majors, Ping Church, Jake Temple, Brant White, Rome Yarbrough, Bella Porter, Lily Tinch, Rosa Lee Quim, Hayden Gilbert, Lilly Rae Rushing, Kirsten Stevens, Jonah Mobley, Dylan Walker, Lily Norris, Gabe Sorrells, Spencer Neville, Savannah Liverett, Ben Cofield, Reagan Phillips, Grant Clark, Faith Ruder, Alexis Bailey, Macy Seymour, Matthew Lynn, Emma Parson, Kennedy White, Madison Berry, Evelyn Kate Carroll, Kensley Fredrickson, Kohlton Taylor, Gracie Blaylock, Meagan McCullar, Adyson Robertson, Allie Bishop, Drake James, Aynelise Vickery, Whitt Sutherland and Anna Kate Bice.
Tolbert would like to thank all the students for their hard work, as well as the faculty and staff at HHS for allowing him the opportunity to work with the seniors.
The entire cast and crew of “No Substitutes” cordially invites everyone to attend their performance Saturday night.
