The Port Clinton High School Drama Club will present its student production of Back to the 80’s on Friday and Saturday, April 12 and 13, at 7:30 p.m. at the PCHS Performing Arts Center.
Set in the USA, Back to the 80’s tells the story of the senior class of William Ocean High School that graduated in the 1980’s, as remembered and seen through the eyes of Corey Palmer, played by Isaac Akins, who is now 30-something.
The then 17-year-old Corey, played by Marshall Parker, is madly in love with his next-door neighbor, Tiffany Houston, played by Alyson Shaler, one of the coolest girls in the school. However, she barely notices this, as she is too busy mooning over Michael Feldman, played by Zach Wheeler, the hottest guy around. Michael and his friends Billy Arnold, Lionel Astley, and Huey Jackson, played by Seth Bickel, Ian Kyle, and Logan Hepp, are athletic and good-looking—the kinds of guys that Corey and his two best friends Alf Bueller and Kirk Keaton, played by Sam Miller and Michael Davis, dream of being. However, while they may not be the coolest guys in the school, they are still one up on Feargal McFerrin III, played by Jack Warner, whose best friend is his computer, and who believes the crazy notion that one day CD’s will replace cassette tapes.
