‘The Barker’ Opens with New Dates:
See the Play This Weekend
“The Barker,” Palisades High School’s play about carnival life and the lives of those who performed, was shut down last weekend (November 8,9, and 10) because of the Woolsey fires and subsequent evacuations. PaliHi served as a Red Cross evacuation center.
“The kids were devastated! There are more than 90 kids from the theater, dance, and music programs that have collaborated for weeks on this show,” Co-director Cheri Smith wrote Circling the News this morning (Thursday). “We had so many tickets sold and lost all of those patrons.
“But we are back in business!!!!” Smith said. “We got notice yesterday that we can have three shows to try to make-up for the hit we took.”
The show will run tonight, Thursday at 7 p.m. and again on Friday and Saturday (November 16 and 17) at 7 p.m.
“It’s so hard with the late notice but we are hoping to get the word out there,” Smith said.
(Editor’s note: The show is definitely worth seeing. I gave it a good review, “PaliHi’s ‘The Barker’ Is Sensational” on November 2, which can be read on this blog. General admission tickets are $16 and parking is free. You may purchase tickets at the door or palithebarker.brownpapertickets.com.)
