Fifth grader takes on Oliver! for GMHS musical

Posted on November 18, 2016, in Lancer Life, Performing Arts


James W. Parker Middle School’s David Price will be playing Oliver in the classic Dicken’s novel Oliver!, which opened at General McLane High School last night. Tickets are on sale for this musical, which will be staged at General McLane High School now through November 20, 2016.

Price plays soccer, Irish Dances and practices different instruments. He also enjoys climbing trees.

Even though he is only a fifth grader, Price hopes his plans after high school involve being on a mission to Mars.

We had a chance to catch up with him before this weekend’s play.
