* CAST SELECTED BY AUDITION. REGISTER ONLY IF SELECTED. Sr. Play – Great Expectations (Grades 9-12) This play is adapted from one of the greatest novels in the English language—a story of pride and ambition blinding a soul to the true values of life. This Charles Dickens classic features memorable characters such as Young Pip, the blacksmith's apprentice whose secret benefactor gives him his great expectations of becoming a wealthy London gentleman; the mad Miss Havisham who shut herself away in her gloomy mansion when she was abandoned on her wedding day; her daughter, Estella, whom she has trained to break men's hearts; the kind and gentle blacksmith, Joe Gargery, who acts as a father figure to Pip; his awful wife, Pip’s sister, called Mrs. Joe; the escaped convict, Magwitch, and the scarred man who is stalking him; the bumbling Herbert Pocket; the pompous Uncle Pumblechook; the austere lawyer, Jaggers, with his whimsical clerk, Wemmick; the murderous Orlick; kindly Biddy; arrogant Drummle; and a vast array of other wonderful characters! The gripping drama and delightful humor masterfully written in this classic story will leave the audience intrigued and entertained.
