About 100 students are part of the cast and crew, Director Cindy Rasche said Wednesday. The cast will perform for Clinton Middle School students Friday morning and for the general public Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. at Vernon Cook Theater. Tickets are $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and $3 for students and children. Advance tickets are available at Clinton Middle School. The auditorium seats 700, and the middle school plays are usually sold out, Rasche said. Assistant directors are Diane Radke and Kristi Gray. Radke also serves as accompanist.
