In theatre, ‘blackout’ means to close the curtain. At opening night of Les Miserables in the Kayhi Auditorium Thursday, a blown fuse caused a literal blackout and a thirty minute delay. The cast, crew, and audience was briefly panicked when the lights flashed off but the director put the audience at ease. The power outage came on the heals of an outage at the school which had students sitting in their first period classes until 10:15 a.m. when the lights came back on and the school day resumed.
Friday’s performance begins at 7:30 p.m.
Les Miserables will run through Sunday. Tickets are available at the door.
