For months, Ava High School’s students have worked hard to memorize and practice the Brother’s Grimm Spectaculathon, this year’s school play, before April 6. Hours of rehearsal have piled up into making this show the best one yet, and based on the actual performances, it would appear they accomplished doing so. The stage was littered with props and costumes, and the energy was at an all time high as the cast members performed in front of the Ava community. Despite some hard times and frustrations, the cast pulled through in order to meet the deadline and make the show fun and entertaining for everyone.

The show ran for about two hours, though for everyone else, it ran a lot longer. The Spectaculathon crew was at the school from 5:30 to late in the night as they got makeup, costumes, and props ready for each performance. Those outside of the cast arrived before 7 pm, paying three dollars for a student ticket or five dollars for an adult ticket to get through the doors. On the final night, the cast finished off the show by presenting Mrs.Wolfskill, their director, with a Brother’s Grimm book, pictures of the cast, and flowers. Overall, the cast did a fantastic job putting their own creativity into the play, earning praises from all who attended.
