Directed by Karen Stacks, the Legacy High School fall play was a sensation namely because of the strong actors and the perfect comedic timing of the show. The female lead, played by junior Maya Claridge, stole the show and kept the audience in stitches. Dr. Chumley, played by senior Jacob Maki, lit up the stage especially in the scenes when he was being chased by the invisible rabbit. Senior Carter Wilson, who played a sanitarium doctor, added to the comedy in his interview of Claridge, who has a nervous breakdown in his office. Annie Carpenter, playing the role of Claridge's daughter, showed good characterization throughout the show and she and Claridge made a good family set. Performances by Brian Dunning as the judge, Shea Cassidy as an elitist guest and Braeden Wilson as the sanitarium worker added to the show's overall humor. Lead Tristen Zuzek played a low-key version of Jimmy Stewart that proved lovable to the audience. It's a two thumbs up for Legacy and Stacks. Look for the next Legacy show in March 2018, the Wizard of Oz.
