Hailey Bouzek (left) is one of around 20 students involved in the production. One of her roles is Dani, a customer service manager who has to fire an employee played by Emma Koether (right). “You have the crazy customers in a few of the scenes, or you have the crazy help desk person who’s not useful at all. Each one has their own personality and way of responding to the phone calls,” said director Michelle Hontz.

Kiarra Young will play the character Marcus, who calls into the help desk about holey socks. It’s one of 12 different customer service scenarios portrayed in “Help Desk.”

Scott Campbell plays Vinny, who works for a package delivery company. He described the play as "funny and weird at the same time, which is what I enjoy. I’ve definitely grown more confident because I usually don’t do goofy stuff like this.”

MFL MarMac Middle School play is March 26 and 27
