Dedicated HS Student-Actors Shine in ‘Plaza Suite’


For this year’s diverting winter play, the dedicated thespians at the high school presented Neil Simon’s “Plaza Suite” at two performances on January 15 and 16.

As in the original Broadway production of Simon’s Tony-winning 1968 comedy play, “Plaza Suite” was presented in three acts – “Visitor from Mamaroneck,” “Visitor from Hollywood” and “Visitor from Forest Hills” – all taking place in Room 719 at New York City’s Plaza Hotel, although at at different times. 

“This show was unique in that the lead actors in each scene had over 35 pages of lines to memorize, and they did an amazing job,” said James Henry, the director. This was Henry’s fourth time directing the high school’s winter play, assisted by student director Samantha Colon.

“I would have to say that the show was a huge success,” Henry said. “I am really proud of all the students in the production and everything they accomplished in the three months since rehearsals began.”
