SKETCH

 

Things are about to get very sketchy on the campus of Millikan Middle School as the Drama Production Department presents SKETCH: A Madcap Comedylive and living color!  Inspired by shows such as Saturday Night Live, Mad TV, and In Living Color, the production will feature a raucous blend of original sketch comedy, music, and dance. With special tributes to the comedy of Abbott & Costello and George Carlin, the show promises to be one of the rowdiest (and most unique) theatre going experiences of the year! 

The comedy is written and adapted by Noemi Villela Dean & Tres Dean.  The production is directed by Tres Dean with choreography by Elizabeth Daniels, Lighting Design by Mark L. Wray, and Tony DiCenzo is the Scenic Designer.  The Costume Coordinators are Takara Adair and Roxanne Wright, with costume designs by the students of the Millikan Costume Design Class. 

 Spring 2017
The
Princess
and the Pea
 

In a laugh-out-loud, updated version of this classic story, a young, out-of-sorts prince finds himself thrust into the daunting challenge of finding a bride. A spiteful enchantress, however, hatches an evil plan in hopes of altering the prince’s future and gaining control of the kingdom.  The show is written by Noemi Villela Dean & Tres Dean, based on the original story by Hans Christian Anderson. It is directed by Tres Dean with choreography by Elizabeth Daniels. Tony DiCenzo is the Scenic Designer. The Costumes are designed by Takara Adair, in collaboration with Roxanne Wright’s costume design class.

 SPRING 2016

JACK

    

In this updated version of the timeless classic, a young girl (interestingly enough named Jack) is determined to leave childhood behind and, in turn, is slowly losing the ability to tap into her imagination until she finds herself magically trapped in the story of Jack and his magic beans. The only way out of the story is to become the title character, slay the Giant and rescue the Queen, or stay trapped in the fairy tale world forever. You thought you knew the fairy tale, but you don’t know Jack.  The show is written and adapted by Noemi Villela Dean & Tres Dean, with the later directing. Tony DiCenzo is the Scenic Designer and Mark L. Wray is the Lighting/Effects Designer. The Costumes are designed by Takara Adair, in collaboration with Roxanne Wright’s costume design class. Choreography by Elizabeth Daniels.
