Northrop High School kicks off the 2014-15 season Thursday at 7 p.m.  with Flowers for Algernon.

It is about a man named Charlie Gordon a willing victim of a strange experiment that turns him from mentally challenged into a genius in search of his identity. The play will also run Friday at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $5 and buy one get one free for students.

Caleb Curtis, senior, plays the main character Charlie Gordon. Caleb said he was nervous, but “the good kind” that drives him to do better in every performance.

He loves this role because of the journey Charlie goes through from being mentally challenged to genius and back again. He also enjoys the work his classmates have done.

“I thinks the play will be really good. I expect people to bring tissues and hope the audience loves and enjoys it,” Caleb said.

Cory Gialamas, junior who plays teenage Charlie expects everything to go smoothly for the most part. His favorite parts of rehearsing his roles as teenage Charlie are probably the concert and party scene as it is the most eye-popping.

“Everyone does really well in the play,” he said.

C.J. Auld, sophomore, who introduces the professor and doctor at the convention is excited for this play. He expects it to really be good.

“I have all my lines down but I might forget them during the performance,” he said.

Senior Danielle Demayo plays adult Norma and is not too nervous because she has been in  several productions.

“I think the play will be really good. We’ve worked really hard and I hope it turns out well,” she said.
