Of all the characters from Disney's "High School Musical," who could forget Ms. Darbus, the haughty, passionate drama teacher, complete with thick glasses and a flair for the absurd?
Tony-nominated Broadway, film and TV actress Alyson Reed, who played the role of Ms. Darbus, is scheduled to present a series of theater activities for youths the week of Jan. 28 in partnership with Salt Lake Acting Company.
Reed will attend five area elementary schools to present educational assemblies. The schools are Canyon Rim Elementary, Washington Elementary, Nibley Park Elementary, Wasatch Elementary and Bennion Elementary.
The actress will also host a family presentation on Jan. 31 at 6:30 p.m. at Clayton Middle School, 1470 S. 1900 East. The event costs $5 per person and will include games, improvisation, scene work, mock interviews, a question-and-answer session and photo oppoortunities.
