Helias Catholic Theater Department to present 'Helium’ Nov. 17-19

The Helias Catholic High School Theater Department will present “Helium,” a one-act play, Nov. 17-19 at Scene One Theatre in Jefferson City.

Performances will be at 7:00 p.m. Nov. 17-18 and 2:00 p.m. Nov. 19. Doors will open 30 minutes before showtime.

“Helium” is an uplifting story of a brilliant, humorous and creative chemistry teacher who braves the trials of frailty and aging, all while keeping her imagination, charm and dignity intact. With the help of imaginary helium balloons, Mrs. Molly Kingsley takes off on imaginative flights of fancy visiting the seashore of her youth and her old high school chemistry classroom while her daughter, Alice, struggles to keep her mother’s feet firmly on the ground.

Helias Catholic’s production will feature Anna Schatte as Mrs. Kingsley and Allison Marke as Alice, along with cast members Claire Huntley, Stella Phillips and Hayden Kennison and crew members Jack Callahan, Sophia Johnson, Ellie Brown and Payton Kauffman.

Tickets will be available to purchase at the door for $15 per person or $50 for a family of four.

Proceeds from ticket sales will help support the Helias Catholic competitive theatre, speech and debate team’s season, including a performance at the Missouri Thespian Conference in Kansas City. “Helium” is the team’s competition show, and the Nov. 17-19 performances also will feature special performances by cast members.
