One-Act Play Opens this Week!

Dear All,

Happy Rainy Sunday!

Please continue to review the google calendar for rehearsal/class deadlines and updates. If there are additional email addresses that you would like me to add – as always,  let me know, and I’ll happily share those with the calendar as well. Thanks so much for coming to the booster’s meeting on Thursday! We will have our next booster meeting in mid-November.The next two weeks are going to be very busy ones for the entire theater department. The One-Act Competition season is often the most rewarding part of the school year. Everyone is encouraged to see the show on Friday! If you miss it, students may certainly come to Harrisonburg High School to participate in the VHSL One-Act Competition.

Come out and see a great show this week!
This year’s One-Act play pays tribute to the women who have supported our troops at war for the past hundred years. Told from the perspective of fictional characters based on true stories, Jack Hilton Cunningham’s One-Act play,Women and War is a transformative and challenging drama that retells the history of American intervention through monologues and letters. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 4:00 PM. Tickets are $5.00. The show will be held in the black box theater at 7:00 PM this Friday. The show running time is under 45 minutes: concessions will be provided for purchase.

OTHER BLACK BOX PROJECTS/FUND RAISER OPPORTUNITIES:

Intro to Drama students will be producing a school-wide haunted ghost story house on Wednesday, October 30th. The idea is that proceeds from this event can also serve to fund future trips for students. PARENTS OF INTRO TO DRAMA STUDENTS,  WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN ASSISTING WITH THIS? IT WOULD BE A GREAT WAY TO GET INVOLVED AND ALSO GET TO KNOW ME BETTER. 

UPDATES… GETTING THE DRAMA ON STAGE

STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFO ABOUT THIS COMING SOON! As a new incentive for performance diversity and self expression, I am developing with our new librarian Kelly Kroese, a slam night also known as “NO SHAME” which I would like to have on a monthly basis occurring in the black box theater. Of course, there are ground rules, but I feel like this would be a terrific way for students to create, sing, act, dance, paint, show their film projects, etc. My advanced acting class is going to be spearheading this endeavor, but again, if you are interested in assisting with this, please let me know!
