Costumes sought for FFHS musical

Students in this year’s musical production at Fort Frances High School are asking for help from the public to make their performance as authentic as possible.
This year’s musical is “The Music Man,” the story of a con man whose plans to scam a community by pretending to equip and train a boys’ marching band are thrown off track when he falls in love with the local librarian.
The story takes place at the turn of the century—and the students need costumes from this era.
“The cast is looking for costumes circa 1900 to 1910,” said director Val Martindale, a teacher at FFHS.
With Fort Frances having celebrated its centennial recently, it’s possible some people have some costumes they may have made for those festivities, she noted.
Anyone willing to loan or donate clothing to the high school musical can drop it off at the school or call 274-7747 to arrange for pick-up.
The cast of about 30 students is busy rehearsing, along with producer and music director John Dutton and choreographer Sherree Denby.
The show will run April 27-30 at the Townshend Theatre.
