They didn’t mean literally “break a leg.” But that’s about what happened with the musical “Pippin” at Granbury High School. Pirate tackle Mason Jones, also in the musical, suffered a severe sprain during the game Friday. Cast member Grace Arnold filled in nicely Saturday after the two students collaborated on line delivery and character. Jones returned with his ankle wrapped for the Sunday matinee. He performed through most of the show. “He’s a heck of a kid,” theater director Krista Alcorn Holman said. “The way he supported Grace was amazing. To be able to look beyond himself for the good of the show and allow a peer to take over his role was really mature.”
