Preparations for the NHS spring show, Failure: A Love Story, are underway and the Neenah Rocket Players are excited to share that they will be performing the show in Pickard Auditorium at the end of April.

Failure: A Love Story is a show that takes place in the city of Chicago through the 1920s. The story tells the tale of the three Fail sisters as they all fall for the same man. The story of the sisters lives unfold, living above their family clock repair shop, and sadly how all their lives come to a end too soon.

“It is not as gruesome as it sounds. It is a really sweet and sentimental show,” sound crew leader Josie Cleveland said.

The show will open on April 25, at 7 p.m. With additional shows at 7 p.m. on the April 26 and 27. Also a 2 p.m. matinee on the April 28.

Tickets can be bought on the Neenah Rocket Players website or on the N.J.S.D. website.

With a cast of 11 and a crew of around 60 people, both cast and crew are getting ready for opening night. Memorizing lines, working on building the set and hanging posters around town, everyone is keeping busy.

Playing one of the fail sisters, Caroline Vitale loves working with the small cast. “It’s just amazing to work with so many different people all working toward one goal.”

For some students this is their last show.

Having done every show since her freshman year, Cleveland reflects on 12 shows she has done and is figuring out what she wants to say for her senior speech.

It is a show tradition for seniors to give words of wisdom, share jokes or stories and maybe a few tears for the cast and crew. Each senior, starting with the student who has done the least amount of shows, gets five minutes to share what they want.

From memorizing lines, building the set, or preparing senior speeches; cast and crew cannot wait for opening night. Cleveland and Vitale hopes everyone will come and enjoy the show as much as she does.
