Commack High School proudly announces “Man of La Mancha” for the Spring musical production coming to the Commack High School stage on March 27 and 28 at 8 p.m.
Based on “I, Don Quixote” by Dale Wasserman, the musical begins with the imprisonment of spanish novelist Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra during the Spanish Inquisition.
Thrown into a dark prison to await trial, Cervantes and his faithful servant soon find themselves set upon by the other inmates, a bloodthirsty horde of thieves and murderers who organize an underworld trial in which the new inmates must defend themselves.
