The PHS Advanced Acting class invites you to their spring performance of the contemporary drama Everything is Wonderful by Chelsea Marcantel.
The play focuses on an Amish family who tries to hold on to their faith after a stranger shatters their peaceful existence and their estranged daughter returns, cracking open the family’s tragic history.
Director Kimberly Taylor was interested in this play because of its complex themes. “Everything is Wonderful asks us to consider– how do we provide support for healing while also offering each other the opportunity for redemption? This play is heartbreaking and beautiful and unexpectedly funny.”

Jack Gross-Whitaker (Thurs, Sat @2)
Jake Hanke (Thurs, Fri, Sat @2)
Jonas Kra-Caskey (Thursday, Sat. @2pm)
Miranda Long, Eden Lorin, Callan Mitchell (Fri, Sat @7)
