Rolling Meadows High School's inventive fall play, "Figments," by Billy St. John, was selected to be performed during the 2013 Illinois High School Theatre Festival at the University of Illinois, Urbana, Jan. 10-12.

The production went through an adjudication process and was chosen as one of approximately 25 top plays to be performed during the three-day festival. Fellow District 214 schools, Buffalo Grove High School ("You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown") and Prospect High School ("The Sparrow") will also present their full-length productions.

Forty-eight R.M.H.S. students comprising the cast and crew of "Figments" will participate, under the guidance of director Mary Luckritz and technical director, Paul Dombrowski; costumer, Kate McNally; and lighting designer, Charlotte Rathke. Approximately 4,000 students throughout the state will attend.

"Figments" explores the fertile mind of playwright Rick Jacobs, who is struggling with writer's block. The audience witnesses the four figments of his imagination as they play out the opening scene of his next murder mystery. Rick's every mood, whim and angst are revealed, in a most hilarious way.

The cast is comprised of seniors Brian Stumph, Bridget Sullivan, Marty Quinn, Korinne Yonan, Natalia Torchalski and Dan Divane; juniors Hugo SanRoman, Sarah Rosenberg and Julia Palmer; sophomores Omar Banuelos, Kristina Myers, Athena Kopulos, Tyler Martens, Hannah Yonan and Nathaniel Lindstrom; and freshmen Jake Rosenberg, Richard Eyre and Danielle Ponsot.

Before the production travels to the theater festival, there will be an encore public performance at Rolling Meadows High School on Wednesday, Jan. 9, at 6 p.m. Admission is $5.
