The school play The Curious Savage was shown at Milford High School in the CPA on Feb. 27 and 28 at 7 p.m. With a phenomenal cast and incredible story line, this play kept audiences interested until the very last word.

 

The Curious Savage is a comedic play about a women named Ethel P. Savages, who recently lost her husband and gains approximately $10 million. She decides to make the best use of it, despite her step-children’s selfish attempts to get their hands on it.

Ethel has decided to put her wealth into negotiable bonds in the hopes of establishing a fund to help others realize their hopes and dreams. Her step-children decide to commit her to an institution in the hopes of shocking her to her senses. There, she meets many misfits, who she realizes need the exact kind of help she has to offer. Ethel was played by Megan Waxmen, a junior. She has been with the Milford Theatre Company since her freshman year.

“This is my first high school play and I’m beyond excited,” freshman Emily Herman said. Everyone is so close and it feels like such a big family.”Herman played Florence Williams, a quirky patient who has lost a child and replaces that love with a childlike doll.

 

Students who have been participating in the play were thrilled to see it come together.

“I was very nervous but mostly ready,” said Sierra Milbrath, a sophomore.  She was the swing for Savages. “We’d play all of these silly acting games during rehearsal to make us feel more comfortable. Once we had to stare into each others eyes and recite our lines as those characters. No one couldn’t get though it without laughing. It made us better.”

The play itself was roughly two hours long. If you missed the show, MHS performing arts will be putting on POPS 2015: “Rhythm of The Night.” This will be held in the CPA on March 27Th and March 28Th.
