The Drama Department’s spring production will be Wednesday, May 6 at 5:00 PM on the multipurpose room stage. Admission is $5.00. Directed by Ms. Hannah Leirmoe, students in the 10th-12th grade theatre class and the 9th grade theatre class will perform. The evening will begin with the 9th grade drama class performing “Betweenity” by Lindsay Price. This is a rhythmic play about the awkward pause, the silence where you just can’t think of something to say, the space in-between words where nothing is said and yet so much is spoken, and the state of being between. This vignette play explores the beats, pauses, and never-ending silences in conversation.
To follow the 9th grade performance, the theatre class will present the one act comedy “It’s Only a Test” by Annie G. This is the story of a high school student fully prepped for her SATs. On her way to take them she encounters one stranger after another who needs help: a blind man trying to find the subway, a fashionable woman frantically looking for her baby and a young boy afraid his grandmother is going to die. Jessica obliges all and realizes dejectedly that she will be late for the test, but she learns that by helping others she has helped herself.
