Drama club students in grades 6-12 and club sponsor Dr. Cantrell went to see the show STOMP at Fair Park Music Hall. STOMP takes place in New York with an eight member cast who make music on everyday objects like brooms, buckets, trash cans, hammer handles, inner tubes, lighters, and the kitchen sink. It is an energetic show that has the audience clapping in rhythm along with the actors during interactive parts. It was a great live theatre experience.
The high school one act play students and their director, Dr. Cantrell, went to a One Act Play clinic at Texas A&M University-Commerce where they got to practice performing their play in the college theatre and receive a critique from a professional judge about how we can improve our play before our competition. Amanda Mothersell and Blayne Stephens received training on how to operate lights and sounds on a professional board, Maddie Toland worked as a stage manager, while Andrew Davis, Summer Bouley, and Francis Evans worked as stage hands helping with technical aspects. Vera Toland, Jaimie Romero, Annie Simms, and Chloe Mothersell acted out the play. They received great feedback and can’t wait for competition on March 20th.
