Moorhead High School theater presents a love story for the ages — Disney’s “Aida”
October 27, 2017
With music by Elton John, Disney’s “Aida” tells the tale of a forbidden love between an enslaved Nubian princess and an Egyptian soldier forced to face death or part forever. Together, they set a shining example of true devotion that ultimately transcends the vast cultural differences between their warring nations, heralding a time of unprecedented peace and prosperity.
More than 130 Moorhead High School students have come together to create this epic musical that blends humor, passion, comedy, and tragedy.
Director Rebecca Meyer-Larson said, “It feels good to do a show that begins with the lyric ‘this is a story of a love that flourished in a time of hate’ and our company of 130+ young artists takes this message to heart.”
“Aida” will be performed at the Moorhead High School auditorium November 10, 11, 17, 18, 24 and 25 at 7 p.m. with 2 p.m. matinees on November 12 & 19. Tickets can be reserved online at https://www.moorheadschools.org/tix
or by calling the MHS Activities Office at 218-284-2255 beginning October 30.
Moorhead High theater strives to make its performances and facilities accessible to all patrons. A sign-language interpreted performance will be Nov. 11. For tickets for this performance or if you need additional assistance, please contact the Activities Office.
