WALKER -- Where else will you be able to find Mary Poppins, Harry Potter, and the gang from “Friends”?
Inside the Walker Freshman High auditorium this weekend, when 60 students will perform a collection of scenes from their favorite movies and sitcoms during two showings of “Scene It!”
The spring showcase will feature Walker area talented theatre students and is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, April 12-13. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and can be purchased at the door.
“Scene It!” will incorporate 16 crowd-pleasing scenes from nine movies and three sitcoms, including “Forrest Gump,” “The Office,” “The Little Mermaid,” “The Little Rascals,” “Full House,” “Home Alone” and more.
Students will act, sing and dance in a variety of skits meant to showcase all of their skills, talented theatre teacher Fabiola Reno said.
“This allows all the students to get important roles,” she said. “It’s not just a few students doing all the speaking — everybody’s got their gig.”
Two seniors — Haley Davis and Ashlyn Marler — will be recognized with “Oscars” during the production, a tradition Reno started to award students who stayed with the program through graduation.
Students in grades 2-12 will perform under the direction of Reno. Art design is being done by art teacher Kim Pierson and her gifted and talented art students at North Corbin Junior High.
