The Apex Peak Players debut this year’s fall production, The Yellow Boat, written by David Saar. The play is based on the true story of a family in the 1980s whose son is diagnosed with hemophilia and contracted the HIV virus through a transfusion. Do not let the mature nature scare you or your family away; the show was originally written for children, and covers an array of emotions. Senior Lucas Beckett takes the spotlight as the boy, named Benjamin, providing a whole new exciting and colorful perspective to the story.
Performances will be at 7 p.m. in the Apex High School auditorium Nov. 12-14. Tickets can be bought online at ApexDrama.com for $6-7, or at the door for $10 (online tickets must be purchased by 6 p.m. the night of the performance). There will be concessions available in the gym lobby.
This is a show you won't want to miss. All aboard The Yellow Boat!
