Man of La Mancha

(Left) Brandon Fillette as the barber and (Right) Jason Puckett as Don Quixote

Do you like knights in shining armor?   Bar fights with ladders and lances? Tap-dancing horses, the Spanish Inquisition, and tear-jerking ballads? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above, then come see Man of La Mancha!
Based on Miguel de Cervantes’ classic novel, Don Quixote, this heart-warming musical is the story of the author himself, who has been thrown in prison for foreclosing on a church. To protect his novel from being destroyed, Cervantes (Jason Puckett) tells the story of his own Don Quixote, a man who goes crazy from reading too many books about knights and chivalry. Convinced that he is a knight errant, Quixote and his faithful squire Sancho (Drew Goins) set off to find friendship, danger, laughter, love, and plenty of adventure in their quest to ‘dream the impossible dream’.
Man of La Mancha premiers at WHS on Thursday, March 25th at 5:00 PM, and will run Friday and Saturday at 7:00 PM. General admission tickets are $5, and reserved seats can be purchased for Friday and Saturday shows for $7 at lunch or from cast members. Also sold at lunch are break-a-leg grams, which you can send to your friends in the cast, crew and pit.
