NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - North Platte High School students are looking forward to their performance this weekend of the musical Ranked. They have spent months preparing and are excited to perform in person for the community.

The newly written musical portrays a high school ranking system where students feel pressured to be the highest ranked. Students say they look forward to portraying their characters in their own perspective.

“Just it’s a great opportunity for us to not be held to the standards of a professional Broadway actor. We get to kind of make our characters our own,” said senior, Jonah San Miguel.

So far only 80 schools in America are performing this musical.

“This one is more of a new experience I get to kind of determine how this character acts and who he is because nobody has done this before and it’s a new experience. I just think it’s really cool,” said senior, Caedmon Hoaglund.

North Platte High students say they are thankful for in-person performances this year. The show will be Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $7 for students and $8 for adults. There will also be a live stream of the show for Friday’s performance. You can purchase tickets by clicking here.
