‘Our Time’ from Our Town
Several former Dos Pueblos High School “theater geeks” who are pursuing their dreams of a professional life in the performing arts have created a cabaret show called Our Time: Celebrating High School Theater Kids Gone Pro. The one-night only event serves to honor Clark Sayre, their beloved high school theater teacher and Broadway veteran (Merrily We Roll Along, Oliver!) who retired a few years ago after decades running the DPHS department. The DPHS alumni went on to study all around the country but are now continuing their careers in New York City. Luana Psaros (DPHS class of 2015), Sofia Ross (2016), Erika Mireya Cruz (2016), Riva Brody (2017), Nolan Montgomery (2019), and Matthew Kleeberg (DPHS class of 2021) will perform songs from some of their favorite high school productions including Newsies, West Side Story, In the Heights, Mary Poppins, and Pippin, as well as show tunes they learned performing in programs and productions since graduating. Psaros also produces, while Ryan Lea (2015) hosts and Fernanda Douglas (2012) serves as musical director.
If you want to see the former local luminaries on stage under the lights in person, you’ll need to head to the airport. Our Time: Celebrating High School Theater Kids Gone Pro will be performed at Broadway Supper Club 54 Below in New York on March 29. But there’s also a livestream available for friends and family to watch, reminisce over, and marvel at back here at home.
