A great cast and a heartwarming, but tragic story. “Searching for David’s Heart” was originally a novel, but has since been turned into a play.  

Darcy Deeton is a twelve year old girl trying to find herself as well as her brother’s heart, literally. Darcy, or as her brother David calls her, Darce, has always been quite timid, while she feels that everyone around her exudes confidence.

At school the other kids treat Darcy awfully, the only people who can seem to bring her out of her shell are David and her best friend Sam, a magician in training. Sam models himself after the great Harry Houdini and, unbeknownst to him, awakes the extravagant escape artist to narrate the play.

Darcy absolutely adores David and when he starts dating a girl named Crystal, he doesn’t seem to have enough time for her. After a fight between the siblings, tragedy strikes, and Darcy loses the person who means most to her. When David’s heart is donated, her and Sam go to find it. They quite literally go searching for David’s heart.

The show’s opening night will begin at 7 pm that evening, right after the Student Council Spaghetti Dinner, which is from 4:30 to 6:30 pm. The show will be performed all weekend. The time for the Friday and Saturday showing is 7 pm, and the Sunday showing is at 2 pm.

There are 17 cast members for this production with senior Paige Fanning directing the show.

The cast, ranging from freshman to seniors, rehearses everyday after school to get ready for opening night.

“We’ve really pulled it together this past week, and everyone is really confident,” said sophomore Kaitlyn Tiemens.

“(The play) a lot more interesting, I would like to think, because not only does it have the story going on, on stage between the characters, but it also involves the experiences in life of the narrator, who is a character in the show. Unlike other shows, it has that different aspect to it with the live narrator,” Fanning said.

The ticket price will be $8 at the door. If you have a ticket to the Spaghetti Dinner, you can purchase a ticket to the show for the reduced price of $5 at the door. All you must do is show your Spaghetti Dinner ticket when purchasing your play ticket. Adult tickets are $10 at the door, but with a Spaghetti Dinner ticket the price will be $8.

Performers believe that the show will go very well, as they are “well prepared,” according to Kayleigh Ferguson, junior. Both Tiemens and Ferguson enjoy the second act of the play, and can’t wait to perform.
