WACS Drama Club presents ‘The Princess and the Pauper: Manhattan’ today

On Saturday, April 26 at 7:30 p.m., the Westfield High School Drama Club will be presenting an original play “The Princess and the Pauper: Manhattan” by senior Lucy Knappenberger in the Westfield School auditorium.

The story is a contemporary re-telling of the “Prince and the Pauper” fable and switches the lives of two young women Angie, a poor kind hearted girl, and Evangeline, a spoiled rich brat. As well, there is a bit of intrigue, counterfeiting and spying. The entire production from direction to set and lighting design has been done by Westfield students. The author and director, Lucy Knappenberger, is a senior at Westfield and has been accepted into the SUNY-Fredonia BFA program in acting. Admission is free.
