EDISON, NJ -- The Wardlaw-Hartridge School is proud to present its spring musical, Damn Yankees, from March 3-6.

Senior Antonia Santangelo, who will perform in her sixth W-H musical and 10th school production overall, will play the role of Lola.

“It’s a role I love to play because Lola is fun-loving and confident,” Antonia said. “I love that it’s a dance role and that I get to showcase my third element besides acting and singing.”

Antonia has found a home on the Wardlaw-Hartridge stage. Her passion for the performing arts has grown so much that she plans to major in musical theater in college.

“It lifts me up in ways I can’t explain,” Antonia said. “I can be anything I want to be. It’s a feeling I don’t want to forget, which is why I want to pursue this as a career.”

Other leading players include Hannah Yates of Piscataway as Meg, Claude Djan of Scotch Plains as Applegate, and Abe Golding of North Plainfield as Joe Hardy. The cast features many other performers, including several Middle School students.

“There are so many reasons to come see this show,” Antonia said. “You’re going to see everyone featured, you’re going to have fun and you’re going to want to get up and dance.”

The four-performance run includes 7:30 p.m. shows from Thursday through Saturday, March 3-5 and a 3 p.m. matinee finale on March 6. Tickets are $10 for adults and students and $5 for senior citizens. For more information, contact Sharon Byrne, sbyrne@whschool.org or 754-1882, ext. 186.
