While school may be out for the summer, student performers have been hard at work in preparation for a set of shows at the Ballard High School Performing Arts Center (1418 NW 65th St) over the next two weeks.

“Emerald City,” a new musical comedy written by Ingrham High School senior Travis Frank, along with book-writer and lyricist Nora Germani, follows the trials and travails of Jonathan Small, a newly-minted college graduate from North Dakota, who is presented with an opportunity to work at Microsoft in Seattle.

“Jonathan believes he will create a new, normal life for himself in Seattle, but of course, the Emerald City has never been quite normal,” reads a description on the production’s website.

The show features students from Ingraham, Holy Names, Ballard, and Roosevelt, among other local high schools.

With any opening night jitters now in the past after last night’s performance, the remaining shows are this Friday and Saturday, and next Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (July 25-27) at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 for students (those under the age of 21), and $20 for adults.
