The Preston High School fall production this year is “Shrek,” the musical. The thing about doing a play like Shrek is you need a dragon.
“It’s pretty intense. Normally only really big places use a dragon,” director Kimberly Hobbs said. “We checked around and it would cost as much as $3,000 to rent a dragon robot.”
So Hobbs went to Eric Allred, the electronics teacher at the high school and the advisor of the robotics club.
“They wanted a dragon, but it was already rented out. So they asked if we could make one,” Allred said. “It’s been a lot fun. The students and those who have seen it have a great deal of enthusiasm for the project.”
The show runs Nov. 15, 16, 19 and 20. It starts at 7 p.m. at Preston High School. Tickets at the door: $7 for adults and $5 children and students. Tickets bought in advance through the high school cost: $6 for adults, $4 for children and students. Call 852-0280 for tickets.
