Danielle Allen of Riverhead plays Aida in McGann-Mercy Theatre Company’s presentation of the Broadway show “Aida.”

Based on Verdi’s opera of the same name, the musical opens in the Eygptian wing of a modern day museum, where two strangers meet and a “transported” back to ancient Egypt. A love story between Aida of Nubia and Radames of Egypt, both of warring nations, evolves with a tragic ending.

More than 50 students are producing the show, directed by Bob Kelly. The show starts May 1 and runs through May 3 in the school auditorium at 7:30 p.m. A spaghetti dinner Friday will take place from 5 to 7 p.m.

Tickets are $10 per person and $15 for dinner and show.
