Next Thursday, June 20th, at 1:30 & 6:30, the Drama Department presents: “An Evening of One Acts.” The students have been working hard to produce this show. Each class, from Grade 7 through Grade 9, in addition to the high school drama class have each produced an amazing one act play. There will be four total plays. Each one runs roughly 20-25 minutes. They are fully produced with lights, sounds, and costumes.
The content is appropriate for G2 – high school children, and of course adults. Both shows are open to public, you’re welcome to come at either time.
Eat Sunshine, Not Zebras
by Dara Murphy
The field believes in uniformity. Lovely rows of blades all the same height. Lovely rows of blades exhibiting standard behaviour of green grassness. Nothing stands in the way of their orderly life. Until they wake up one morning to see a yellow dandelion in their midst. Sunny (that’s the dandelion) is bright and warm and just wants to be friends. The field wants nothing to do with her nonstandard, non-green ways. A dandelion will turn their orderly way of life upside-down. A dandelion must be destroyed. Isn’t that what you do when something is different?
