Montgomery High School’s Virtuoso ensemble presents fall play Nov. 22

Virtuoso, the Montgomery High School music and theater ensemble, will present its fall play, “Hiding in the Open,” at 7 p.m. Nov. 22 and 23 in the middle and high school auditorium.

Written by Kira Obolensky, “Hiding in the Open” is a drama adapted from the memoir of Sabina Zimering depicting her escape from Nazi Germany.

“This play has been one of the most meaningful experiences our students have ever had. They are eager to bring such a powerful story to their audiences,” said Carina McNear, the show’s co-director.

McNear and co-director Jessica Carpenter are anxious to kick off their 2013-14 season.

They also are welcoming Melissa Mabus as assistant director and new teacher to the district.

“Thanks to the students and parents for all of their hard work, time, dedication, and talents,” McNear said.

Tickets can be purchased at the door but reserved seating is encouraged.

Tickets can be reserved by emailing McNear at or calling 570-547-1608 ext. 118.

Virtuoso has been in existence for 15 years, but is in its sixth season as a combined theatre and vocal ensemble.

Virtuoso’s most recent performance was “Tarzan” last spring. They will present “SHREK, the Musical” in April 2014.
