M-A High presents 'Stage Door' Nov. 3-12

Would you follow your dream or sell out? Go for it or give up? Coming to grips with big life decisions is at the heart of the Menlo-Atherton High School production of "Stage Door," which runs on five dates from Nov. 3 through Nov. 12 at the Performing Arts Center on campus.

The fast-paced, dramatic comedy by Edna Ferber and George Kaufman is set in the 1930s at a New York City boarding house. It's a classic story of aspiring actresses struggling to make it big on Broadway, and the men they become involved with along the way.

Debra Zwicker-Sobrepena is the M-A High drama teacher and director of the play.

Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Nov. 3 and 4, and on two Saturdays, Nov. 5 and 12, and matinee shows at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, and 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10.

The Performing Arts Center is at the Ringwood Avenue entrance to the school, just off Middlefield Road.

Ticket prices range from $8 to $12. Both Thursday shows have a special student price of $4 for both the matinee and evening performance.
