Soon, it will be opening night. Curtains will open and students will step on stage or play music from the orchestra pit.

From familiar Broadway titles to contemporary favorites and even a new show or two high school play season will provide local residents a chance to be entertained by a big production and catch a budding star or two in the process.

March is traditionally the time that some of the biggest high school productions are performed. Shows are scheduled all month long and in Livingston County, begin next weekend with shows performed by students at Keshequa Central and Lima Christian schools.

Lima Christian is presenting “Disney’s Descendants: The Musical,” which is based on the Disney Channel original movies.

“Disney’s Descendants” tells the story of Mal, Evie, Jay, and Carlos, the children of the iconic Disney villains we love to hate. This next generation of villains must decide whether to follow their parents’ wicked footsteps or redefine their legacies.

Performances are scheduled for 7 p.m. March 10 and 2 and 7 p.m. March 11 in the Honeoye Falls-Lima District Auditorium, 619 Quaker Meetinghouse Rd., Honeoye Falls.

Geneseo Central is presenting a new production that is a play-within-a-play. “The Play That Goes Wrong” is set during opening night of the Cornely University Drama Society’s newest production “The Murder at Haversham Manor,” where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous.

The 1920s whodunit has an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything – including their lines.

More than 40 middle and high school students are involved in the production.
