Under the direction of music teacher Rose Mary Warnecke, Fort Jennings Senior Class of 2014 will present “The Rest-In-Peace Retirement Home,” a satire of the old and feisty.

It’s pretty deadly at the Old Folks’ Home until Larry wins the lottery. Or at least that’s the way the women hear it. They need a “good sense of rumor” to keep life interesting when they’re not searching for their teeth. The old ladies flirt with old farts, are insulted, then whomp the grumps with their canes. These old cronies can barely walk, hear or remember what they do. Teen players have fun portraying the crotchety actions, voices, expressions and the freedom to be someone else. This version of “The Old Folks” has funny situations and hilarious one-liners.

Senior cast members are Garrett Berelsman, Spencer Dray, Ashley Gable, Marisa Good, Emily Grone, Cassie Horstman, Emily Kehres, Kelsey Klausing, Lucas Luebrecht, Min Metcalfe, Kaylynn Noriega, Ryan Rau, Andrea Ricker, Nicole Ricker, Jamie Saum, Alyssa Schimmoeller, Logan Sickels, Craig Stewart, Alex Vetter and Josh Wittler.

Stage crew members are Nathan German, Jared Hoersten and Alex Ketcham.

Both performance are at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday in the Auditeria. Pre-sale tickets are $5 for adults and $4 for students and will be available in the High School Office from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. through Friday. All tickets at the door will be $5.
