GHHS students stage 'Crossing Delancey'

This play is the endearing tale, set in the 1980s in New York City, which explores the divide between "old school" traditions and modern ways — in much the same way that Delancey Street divides the old neighborhood from the modern city.

Izzy Grossman (played by sophomore Katie Parks) and her "corker" of a grandma, Bubbie (Logan DeWitt) clash over a suitable husband for Izzy. Bubbie has arranged for the neighborhood marriage broker named Hannah (Katie Bowser) to find Izzy a suitor.

Now Izzy must choose between her idol, author Tyler Moss (Alex Stepanek) and the new prospect Sam, the pickle man (Seth Burton).

"Crossing Delancey" is appropriate for all audiences, but caters to the sucker for a love story, according to senior Jake Jager, who helped to direct the production with GHHS Director Rita McLary.

McLary said it's a privilege to work with such talented students, whether on stage or behind the scenes, and gives credit to the actors, crew and Student Director Jen Barnett.

Tickets are available at the door at $8 for adults, and $5 for students and senior citizens.
