Seaside High School drama is gearing up to present their fall play, “Going for Broke” by Michal Jacot, at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1, in the Seaside High School Cafetorium.

After being part of the richest family in Boston, the adult Webb kids try to adjust to sudden poverty when crazy brother Elwood is given total control of the fortune. The Webb kids don’t know how to be poor. They try everything from renting rooms in the mansion to taking a job as a clown for children’s parties.

Their luck changes with the reappearance of their mother, whom they thought was dead; their cranky butler, Fenwick; and the surprise introduction of Fenwick Jr. Junior is a boorish, obnoxious lout, but is also the sole heir to the Webb fortune. The exasperating family dynamics reach a fever pitch of high comedy as the kids try to retrieve “their” money.

Introducing seniors Frida Ruff, Lukas Jolly, Jacob Seibel, and sophomore Olivia Mayhugh as the Webb siblings; senior Crystal Rouse as Mrs. Webb; sophomore Sophia Reynolds as Fenwick Jr; and a supporting cast full of eccentric characters. Directed and produced by Susan Baertlein and assisted by Ann Branson.

Performances of this comedic farce are Friday November 1, Saturday November 2, and the following week, November 7, 8, and 9. Doors open at 6:30 and performances begin at 7pm. 

Tickets are sold at the doors. Prices are $7 for adults and $5 for senior citizens, veterans and active military, students with ASB card, and children under 13.

“Going for Broke” is presented with permission from Eldridge Publishing Company.
