Ham on Regal returns to Ferris High School after two years

SPOKANE, Wash. — Ham on Regal is back at Ferris High School for the first time

in two years!

It’s an original musical and comedy show written and performed by parents and school staff. The show is also a fundraiser for academics, athletic programs and even supplies for classrooms.

This year’s theme is “AlakazHam! Finding the Magic of Ferris.” In the show, new principal John O’Dell tries to find out what makes Ferris such a magical place. The show features scenes from the classrooms, sports fields, cafeteria, and so much more.

Adam Oakley, principal at nearby Longfellow Elementary School, is one of the chairs of the show, which premiered on Sunday, March 13.

“Our auditorium holds 867 people. We had 780 people in the crowd! The cast is so excited to be back on stage. Our 2020 show was cut short after our Wednesday show. So it was the first day back in almost exactly 2 years. The cast had such an amazing time! The crowd was fantastic! The crowd gave us so much energy,” Oakley said.

There are more shows planned this week and tickets are only $10.

“Very few of us are trained actors, singers, or dancers,” said Oakley. “Given the lack of experience we all have, gaining this amount of encouragement early in show week is a game changer.”
