The sweaty and exhausted actors anxiously await callbacks after a long weekend of audition preparation. Off stage, students nervously anticipate their dance audition. Groups of six walk on stage to perform the routine previously engrained in their minds at the dance workshop three days before. It is time to leave it all on the stage.
This year the stage opens up with two new shows, Moon Over Buffalo and 42nd Street.

Mary Poppins, a 1964 musical film known for its whimsical lead character and its songs “Chim Chim Cher-ee,” “A Spoonful of Sugar,” “Feed the Birds” and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” was brought back to life Saturday night by the Floyd Central Theatre Department. Directed and designed by theatre teacher Robbie Steiner, the production maintained the same charm and authenticity as the original film while also adding special effects that kept the audience entertained throughout the entire show. Between the oddly real looking sets, familiar songs, and dance numbers, this play was so good that it was practically perfect.

The theatre department’s next show is to hit Studio One today, Friday, Jan. 23, with the performance of the show “[Title of Show].”
“It is a musical about people writing a musical about writing a musical. It’s like inception,” said director Robbie Steiner. “It is the product of what they have been writing and it’s showing them writing it.”
