Penn Yan Academy presents 'Big Fish'

PENN YAN--The Penn Yan Academy Drama Club will present "Big Fish" Thursday through Saturday, March 9, 10 and 11 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, March 12 at 2 p.m. in the school auditorium.
"Big Fish" is a musical with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa. It is based on Daniel Wallace's acclaimed 1998 novel, "Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions" and on a film by John August based on the book. The musical premiered in Chicago in April 2013.
"Big Fish" is a story about the relationship between a father named Edward, played by junior Zack Blauvelt, and his son Will, played by sophomore Noah Detar. It occurs at a key moment in the transition of both their lives. Will is about to be married and become a father. His father has cancer and is about to die.
Will's relationship with his father has been strained all his life because his father tells long stories about the past that seem to mix fact and fiction. Will feels he want to know who is father "really is" before it's too late.
Edward's story is told through flashbacks in which he ages from his teenage years to the present time. A secret lies hidden in Edward's past, a secret that explains the real meaning of his stories. It provides the key to Will's understanding of his father and the resolution of their conflict.
Edward's wife Sandra is played by senior Corrinn Cincotta. Senior Marina Coriale plays Josephine, Edward's secret love from the past. Other cast members include sophomore Paul H. Gaston (Karl), Junior Juan Espana (Amos), freshman Genna Elliott (the witch), senior Patrick Reagan (Doc), Junior Daniel Falter and freshman Jacob Eskildsen (Don and Zacky Price). First grader Porter Reynolds plays young Will. The chorus and dance ensemble includes high school and elementary students.
Pre-sale tickets are available at Longs' Cards and Books, Pinckney Hardware and Milly's Pantry. Tickets are $7 for students and seniors and $8 for adults. Tickets purchased at the door cost $1 more.
