It’s always a surprise when something smashes through the wall of a set, especially when it’s an airplane. But this is exactly what happened. The airplane, constructed by Ethan Beach, was part of Springville High School’s production of The Drowsy Chaperone.

This was a fun musical about a love-struck showgirl, a monkey (well, not a real monkey), a worried producer, a couple of gangsters, and a host of other colorful characters. There was witty dialogue, humorous scenes, and lots of fun songs.
