The advanced theatre class production of “California Suite” opened December 1st without a hitch. As a member of the Highland Theatre Company, I have seen and been involved in a multitude of shows, but it’s without any doubt in my mind that this is one of my favorites to watch. All night the show had me rolling on the floor with its hilarious scenes performed by students such as seniors Dylan Root, David Allison, and Luke Wasowicz, to name a few.

“California Suite” had an excellent blend of both seriousness and hilarity, showcasing scenes depicting an estranged divorced couple arguing over who gets more custody, to the two Brits drunkenly disappointed after the Grammys.

A particular favorite scene of mine was performed by Wasowicz, senior Brittany Siver, juniors Edwin Dejesus, and Emily Michalak. The scene starts off with Mort (Wasowicz) carrying his injured wife, Beth (Michalak) into the suite, where we learn the couple’s friends are to blame for the injury. The other couple Stu (Dejesus) and Gert (Siver) enter, leading to witty banter and a multitude of hilarious remarks from all characters.

“I’ve been in the ‘Madrigal’, ‘Fiddler on the Roof’, and ‘Bye Bye Birdie’, but this is my first lead in a show,” senior Maya Dziepak says.

“This will be my 12th show, including the advanced theatre productions,” Allison says.

Overall, “California Suite” is a hilarious show, showcasing the immense talent our school provides.
