Note from Dan Gibson: Mary Yohem is a student at Catalina Foothills High School and the daughter of Roger Yohem from our sister publication, Inside Tucson Business. She asked for an opportunity to plug a youth theater production she's involved in, so here you go.

One of the “biggest” theatre productions of the summer is “Big,” being staged by the Catalina Foothills Community Schools Summer Theatre program. It is the Broadway musical version of the popular 1988 movie starring Tom Hanks.

Directed by Terry Erbe, the high school’s theatre teacher, the play is about 12-year-old Josh Baskin who wishes he were "BIG" and wakes up the next morning as a 30-year-old man. He discovers there's much more to being an adult then he wished for.

Starring in the lead role is Drake Sherman, a Foothills high school junior, as adult Josh. Young Josh is played by Justyn Zeider, an eighth grader at Esperero Canyon Middle School, and James Cockrell, a Foothills high school freshman. Josh’s best friend Billy is played by Vaughn Sherman, a Foothills freshman.

Sharing the spotlight as Susan Lawrence, the female lead, are Sara Fallahi, a Foothills senior, and Savannah Runge, a Foothills freshman. The technical directors are Norm Testa and Clint Bryson. Musical accompaniment is by Khris Dodge.

The shows, held at Catalina Foothills High School Little Theatre, 4300 E. Sunrise Drive, open Thursday June 28 at 1 p.m. at a discounted rate of $5. All shows after that are $10, starting with a 7 p.m. performance that night. Friday and Saturday show times are 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.
