I am so proud of the hard work and enthusiasm that our students are bringing to this years fall play, said Jennifer Reusz, drama director and math teacher at Lincoln-Way North. We are hopeful that the productions references to shows like American Idol and The Bachelor will generate interest and excitement among our high school students.

The performance tells the story of King Evian whose dying words grant his royal succession to a hillbilly named Yokel who needs a wife to assist in running the kingdom. Five eligible young ladies compete for the kings love with American Idol and Survivor type challenges. The audience will be entertained as Yokel faces a series of problems in saving his kingdom from ruin and finding true love in the process.
