~The 2012 Spring Show starred Ciara O'Connell, Connor Hillman, Markus Ikonen, Alex Roden, Haley Graves, Stevie Kirk, Sammy Gilbert and Rachel Gallagher in a musical version of The Breakfast Club.
~The comedy was staged at the Clearwater Academy International. For an admission fee of four bucks, the viewers got more than they bargained for. Connor Tyler, originally from Glendale California, came across as a Hollywood seasoned pro in the role of slacker John Bender.
~John Hughes' original script was adapted to include song and dance numbers melded with strong acting skills. The production was ably directed by Trish Byrnes.
~"I never had so much fun. I sure got my four bucks worth!" crowed Brian Jones of Jones Subpoena Service. "Can't remember when I've had such a good time."
~Kathy Baird agreed, "Rachel Gallagher played a new role as Brian's mom. It really added a fun new dimension to the Breakfast Club. And the dancers and singers were superb!" Rachel is co-starring in the movie Carpe Totem currently filming at St. Petersburg College. - Ciara O'Connell photo and story by kody moe
