Kent-Meridian High Drama club presents ‘Heaven Can Wait’

Catch the show at 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 17 or Saturday, Nov. 18

The drama program at Kent-Meridian High School will present Harry Segall’s “Heaven Can Wait” at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 17-18 in the Kent-Meridian Performing Arts Center, 10020 SE 256th St.

”Heaven Can Wait” tells the bittersweet story of Joe Pendleton, a boxer and pilot, who is mistakenly delivered to the afterlife by a new and inexperienced messenger, who nabs Joe’s soul from a plane crash that he was supposed to have survived.

When the messenger’s mistake is revealed, he is ordered to return Joe to his body on earth. Unfortunately, Joe’s body has already been cremated, forcing a search for a new body that Joe can live out the rest of his life in. …and so goes the plot, as we watch Joe try to get back on his path of destiny.

Tickets are available at the door and on showtix4u.com. Adults: $10. Children 12 and under, $5. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
