At the back of Vacaville Performing Arts Theatre, parent volunteer Al Pemberton of Vacaville buzzed a belt sander on a small wood platform, smoothing the edges. A stage technician applied black paint to risers on the main stage. And nearly 75 Vacaville teenagers, actors, singers and musicians, queued up for a light lunch outside the back of the city-owned theater on Ulatis Drive.
All the activity Saturday was in advance of a noontime run-through of Act 1 of Wood High’s staging of Elton John and Tim Rice’s “Aida,” the school’s spring musical, set to open Wednesday night for a four-day run.
