York County high schools are preparing for musical productions — including some traditional favorites and some brand new to the theater scene.

Dallastown Performing Arts Club is tapping into the modern psyche with the social media farce "There's an App for That?," which follows a recently fired science teacher who refuses to leave her experiments.

The one-night-only performance on Friday, Feb. 8, also will double as a dinner theater, as guests will be treated to a three-course spaghetti dinner in the high school cafeteria.

Kennard-Dale Drama Club's selection of "Crazy For You" is a show about theater — or rather, one banker's love for the theater and his resistance to shutting down a local venue and losing the girl — written by York County native Ken Ludwig, featuring some classic tunes by George Gershwin. The show runs Feb. 28-March 3.

York Catholic High School's "Cinderella (Enchanted Edition)" is a modern spin on the classic, including songs from the original Rodgers and Hammerstein musical with a script that was updated in the '90s — similar to the 1997 film starring Whitney Houston and Brandy. It will be performed March 1-3.

The William Penn Fine Arts Academy will present "Disney's Freaky Friday" — developed by Disney Theatrical Productions with no Broadway run — April 12-13 at the Appell Center for the Performing Arts in downtown York, in partnership with the local theater.
