Last week the Senior Drama class presented the 2017 Senior Production: Mistakes. This production is the most topical and raw production that I have ever worked on. Headlines ripped straight from the Newspaper or Social Media and put straight into the script. A fast, organic, real theatrical experience for the performer and the audience alike.
We all make mistakes, we say and do things that we shouldn’t and don’t do the things we should. From everyday people like you and me to our world leaders. Sometimes the effects of our mistakes are small, other times we fail to understand just how deep our failures will impact on a few or the many. We as a society are at a critical timeline, where we must acknowledge our mistakes, and allow them to inform us for the future that lies ahead. We become consumed by such issues that are, to others unquestionably insignificant. The grass is not as green on the other side from time to time.
The students worked so very hard over the past seven weeks learning lines, creating props and costume pieces, set building and promoting the production. Many hours outside of school have been invested. We had two sold out performances and would like to thank all who came and supported Mistakes.
