Riverton High School Helps Disney Pilot Two New Plays

The theater department at Riverton High School is bringing two new Disney worlds to life with the pilot productions of ” Squirrel Girl Goes to College” and “Subatomic a Stature Play.” Last spring, Disney contacted Mr. Eaton and Ms. McGuire in the school’s Performing Arts Department about bringing two “secret” Marvel Comics projects to the stage. The challenge for staff was that they did not receive details about the productions or scripts until August 1st. After the performances, the high school’s theater department will report back to Disney and Marvel about the student’s experiences and how the audience reacted to the plays.

You can catch ” Squirrel Girl Goes to College” and “Subatomic a Stature Play” on Friday, September 13th at 7:00 pm and Saturday, September 16th at 7:00 pm at the Riverton High School Auditorium.
