York High announces 2017 spring musical

Posted on January 25th, 2017

William Penn Senior High School students will perform “Memphis” on April 8 and 9 in the high school auditorium.

Adult tickets are $5 and students are $3.

“Memphis” is set in the places where rock and roll was born in the 1950s: the seedy nightclubs, radio stations and recording studios of the musically-rich Tennessee city.

With an original score, it tells the fictional story of DJ Huey Calhoun, a good ole’ local boy with a passion for R&B music and Felicia Farrell, an up-and-coming black singer that he meets one fateful night on Beale Street. Despite the objections of their loved ones (Huey’s close-minded mama and Felicia’s cautious brother, a club owner), they embark on a dangerous affair.

As their careers rise, the relationship is challenged by personal ambition and the pressures of an outside world unable to accept their love.
