High School Drama

Just Another High School Play

Author: Bryan Starchman

Synopsis: Here's a comedy that covers nearly every angle of the typical high school play with a dose of history and improvisation thrown in for good measure! A group of actors, who have apparently been abandoned by their drama teacher, have to fend for themselves opening night in front of a live audience. Their teacher has left them hanging because no one has been showing up to rehearsals and no one is really quite sure what they are supposed to do. The student assistant director and the stage manager step in, find a box of scripts which they pass out to the cast, and try to throw something together. What follows is a rollicking show full of physical comedy, gags, and satirical re-writings of many plays from Shakespeare to Albee. The next time your high school wants to do a play, do them all...in under 90 minutes!

Time & Place: 7:00 p.m. at the Tacoma Youth Theater May 10 & 11

Runtime: Appox. 1hr 30min

Ticket Cost: $7 for adults, $5 for students (preschool thru 12th grade), seniors 65+, and military. Tickets available in the High School main office.


High School Talent Show Update

Due to lack of participation, there will be no talent show on May 17. For more info, please see Maddy H. or Reagan T.
