The play Game of Tiaras is a mixture of Game of Thrones, Shakespeare, and Disney with lots of silly scenes and funny costumes. It incorporates pop culture with Shakespearean themes, plus it also has a cast with characters such as Tinker Bell, Arya Stark and Princess Leia.

The play is being performed November 1-4 at 7 p.m. in the Fine Arts Theater with a 2 pm matinee on Saturday. Director Jimmy Miller chose Game of Tiaras because he wanted a show that is unique, and he always wants different types of shows for his students to perform in throughout their years at Creek.

“This is a big costume show, and a light construction show as the sets aren’t that big,” Miller said. “ It has a lot of different stock characters, such as Disney Princesses and it’s also very silly!”

The drama talent pool was also a consideration for Miller in picking the title. A lot of girls, in particular, auditioned, and Miller thought many of them had talent.

“We wanna give as many kids as possible an opportunity to be on stage,” he said.

With a cast of 36 actors, Game of Tiaras does just that.

Since it’s the first show of the year, Miller hopes it will bring many freshmen into the Creek Drama department. Also with the number of new students in the show, it brings a lot of new ideas to the table and also lots of new talent.

The students who don’t act work on tech, which is split into 6 parts: props, construction, sound, lighting, costumes, and marketing. Construction works on the set which fetures 5 24-foot tall tapestries, a large ice and jail wall, and a recreation of the iron throne. While Costumes works on sewing over 30 costume almost completely by hand, props makes all hand held items, sound sets up the microphones and lights positions each light on stage with over 75 lights

Senior and Stage Manager Rachael Moes hopes a lot of students come see the play.

“It’s a fun time,” she said. “There are disney princesses in it, and it’s also a fun experience that will take you down memory lane to your childhood.”

Miller agrees. “It’s a funny show,” he said. “You’ll have a good time, the talent is incredible, the actors are good, and the production qualities are very high.”
