Months of rehearsal will culminate in two performances of William Shakespeare's play "Romeo and Juliet", adapted by Paul Nolan. Students will be performing at 8:00 p.m. this Friday, November 22 and Saturday, November 23 at 8:00 p.m. in the Jr. High gym. Tickets are $4 in advance and $5 at the door. Advance tickets may be purchased from any cast or crew member.
Students have been rehearsing since the end of September to perform the
complicated love story of "Romeo and Juliet". This production has
involved the whole school! The Ag construction class has created the walls of
Verona and the balcony for the famous love scene. Art 1 & 2 classes have
created and decorated masks for the costume ball scene. 8th grade art classes
have illustrated a simple version of the play--which the cast will read to the
elementary in costume Tuesday. We will perform the play for the elementary
students during the school day this Thursday. The Drama class choreographed an
original dance for the costume ball. Montague and Capulet students learned how
to sword fight and choreographed their own fights! Students not directly
involved with the production were encouraged to 'choose sides' and wear either
a blue Montague bracelet or a red Capulet bracelet to show their support for
one house or the other.
Excitement is high as the day of production draws near! We invite you to join us at the high school for the timeless classic, "Romeo and Juliet" this weekend.
Licking’s TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) Chapter recently decided to involve a service project into one of their weight loss challenges. Participating members who weighed in and lost a pound were asked to bring in a school supply list item the next week; if they gained, they were asked to bring in two items.
Romeo and Juliet coming to Licking High School!
Congratulations to all the students who made the cut and will be
creating "Romeo and Juliet" for us this fall. Here is Our Cast!
The drama class at Licking High School read through 20 different scripts and voted on which play they would like to perform this fall. And the winner is....William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet"! Auditions were held last week and over 40 students showed up to try out for a part. This will be an exciting production! It is a classic love story, plus the guys get to have a sword fight, and the girls get to dress up and dance at a costume ball! What could be better?
We have started rehearsals this Monday, and will be rehearsing four days a week until our production on November 22 & 23 at 8:00 p.m. onstage in the Jr. High gym. We hope you will mark your calendar and join us in November.
Gabe was cast as the 'murderer' in the Drama Club trip to Bissell Mansion in St. Louis this weekend! Saturday, 39 drama club members, parents and sponsors took a trip to St. Louis to the Bissell Mansion for an interactive murder/mystery dinner theater experience. Each student received a 'part' as we were seated for lunch! They got to read their lines and act in the melodrama. Students got a big kick out of the interactive play. Ryan described it as "Amazing and punny!" Cheyenne said, "I think the best thing about the trip was the surprizing twist ending and being involved." Gabe, who was cast as the' murderer', said, "the performance was amazing and hilarious!"
It was a fun and welcome break for the Drama Club, who has been rehearsing four days a week since the end of September, preparing the show "Romeo and Juliet". We will be performing November 22 and 23 at 8:00 p.m. onstage in the Jr. High Gym. We invite you to join us then!
