Joined at the Head Excels

Devyn Crawford

Pure genius swept the stage Friday night as Tomball Memorial unveiled their first-ever production, Joined at the Head.

Although all of the actors put on a tremendous show, the performance of three stood far from the rest.  With such magnificence and power never before seen, Rachael Shah is Maggie, Danny Serpati captures every characteristic of Jim, and Jordan Murray gives life to Maggy in an unexpected and refreshingly ironic way. 

With every emotional twist and turn, these three take the challenge fearlessly and dominate each line as if those lives were their very own.

“I am as pleased as I could possibly be.” Said TMHS theater teacher and director, Bryce Ballew.

 Joined at the Head proved to be one of the most enticing theatrical productions ever before seen.  Through each of Maggie’s emotional stages, every laugh taken in good humor, and the performance of the ultimate dream team, Joined at the Head woos the audience into believing the path of a young woman out to accidentally discover herself and, through the process, participate in the self-discovery of others.

“I am just so proud of them,” THS Junior and Tomball Stage actor, Joe Daniels, said.  “They did better than I could ever possibly do in my life.”

 And as each cast member finds a norm again, they enter into a well-deserved 15 minutes of fame, and Joined at the Head retires as one, out of the many to come, of Tomball Memorial’s greatest.
