Year End Dramatics

Arts, Breaking News, Drama

This year’s final drama shows showcased the diverse talents of the drama majors as writers, actors, and technicians. With only three weeks of rehearsal, the students were able to put together some stunning works. The grade 8’s performed student-created anthologies, while the grade 9’s did 10-minute plays. The grade 10’s wrote and acted in a murder mystery, “Murder at the House of Hanz,”  and the senior drama majors demonstrated the student-written one acts.

“It is always good to see students perform,” Ms. Fowlis said.  “It is through the creation, rehearsal, preparation and performance that students demonstrate and develop the skills taught to them in the drama major. It is awesome to see  students grow and soar through the performance process.”

Due to the teacher job action, the shows were performed during class time. Though this may have been a difficulty – tech rehearsals were the week before performances, which shortened rehearsal time, and some parents may have had difficulty coming to the shows – it also allowed for more students to see work the work of  their peers. 

In making the audience laugh and reflect, this year’s drama majors have done an admirable job. Slipping out of their skin to amuse and inspire, the actors of 2012 have done their job in creating characters as memorable as the individuals who played them.
