REVIEW: Crestview High spring musical was spooky fun

Published: Wednesday, May 22, 2013 at 04:58 PM.

Cheyenne Baxter, who engagingly and charmingly played Katrina, also is graduating, following an impressive stage debut.

But the good news is we got to see what junior Wesley Barlow — who played the bad guy, Brom Bones — can do on stage, and we were impressed, especially when he sang. We look forward to seeing him in upcoming productions.

In fact, 14 members of the cast and crew are seniors and though we wish them well, we'll miss them and their talents.

Strong performances

Mac Sticha, another enjoyable senior, was Farmer Stuyvesant, a community leader who nicely sums up Sleepy Hollow when he sings, "We're superstitious Yankee folk," setting the stage for ghostly goings on.

As Brom Bones' toady Yost Van Ripper, Michael Brooks was dependable for comic relief, especially when crowned with a dunce cap in Ichabod's classroom.

Dominique Acol and Jill Cumbia as Katrina's friends, Hilda and Greta, were enjoyable. Jill drew laughter when she pined, "I'm almost 17 — practically an old maid."
