The original Broadway show was produced in 1956 and won seven Tony awards, including Best Musical of the Year.
The musical centers around Joe Boyd (Tanner Martindale), a married man who happens to be more in love with baseball than his wife. Boyd makes a deal with the Devil (Michael Cox) — disguised as a slick salesman — and quickly sells his soul in exchange for youth and a chance to play baseball for his favorite team.
The production is a cross between the classic story "Faust" and America's favorite pastime.
In addition to the talented students, teachers , J.D. Hand, Keith Conrady and Tim Laner have volunteered to be a part of the show.
Rachel Simmons and Todd Hollis will serve as musical directors, with Kay McCollom as pianist. Tim Laner is the director and Danny Park is the technical director. Katie Garr is the stage manager.
