Hart Middle School Drama Club presents ‘Haphazardly Ever After’

Pirate News is a presentation of Hart Public Schools in partnership with Oceana County Press.

HART — Hart Middle School Drama Club presents the humorous production, “Haphazardly Ever After,” at the middle school auditorium this weekend March 10-12. 

“Our cast involves 41 students in grades 5-8 who have been working hard for the past two months to prepare for this show,” said Hart Middle School Drama Advisor Suzanne VanderZanden. “The show itself is very funny and includes many references to various fairy tales that involve princes and princesses and end ‘happily’ ever after. Tons of magical fun awaits in this one-of-a-kind fractured fairy tale farce.”

The play is about a kind king and queen who have trouble in their royal family with four obnoxious, bratty, adult children who do not live up to their royal titles — the mean Princess Cinnamon, the not-so-bright Princess Peppermint, the vain Prince Hairgel and Prince Slacker, who thinks being a prince is just “way, way too hard.” The king and queen try everything to bring happiness and harmony to their family. They hire a royal therapist; bring in royal teachers; and even attempt to marry off their children — all to no avail. The king and queen are ready for a happily-ever-after that doesn’t include adult children still living at home, so they call upon the fairy godmother to help. However, after learning the outrageous cost of hiring the fairy godmother (let alone the permits required), the king and queen decide to create a do-it-yourself magic spell with the help of supplies purchased at The Enchanted Depot. Royal chaos ensues. Of course, nothing goes as planned, but everyone is changed by their experiences. And through a series of haphazard events, the royal family just might live happily ever after …  after all. 

Show times are 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, March 10 and 11, and 2 p.m. Sunday, March 12. Tickets may be purchased online using the QR code in the above graphic through Thursday, March 9. They are $8 for adults and $4 per student. Cash-only tickets may be purchased at the door, and they are $10 for adults and $5 for students.
