Original Monologues Featured in First Show, Oct. 22 & 24

The first production of the school year will be an outdoor presentation of Original Monologues by acting students. Entitled "This I Know," the event will be held in the new courtyard located just outside the art classrooms. Thursday, October 22, will feature monologues by Acting One students (6th and 7th periods). Saturday, October 24, features Acting Two and Three Students (8th period). The event begins at 7 p.m.

Thursday performers include Essence Caston, Kiara Edwards, Natalie Greenfield, Mason Jaffers, Alivea Johnson, Paul MacCurdy, Elise Munoz, Sophia Pacheco, Thomas Painter, Ayana Pitre, Morgan Porubsky, Carolina Rodriguez, Jackson Romans, Kelsi Seiter and Victoria Stanley.

Saturday performers include Andre Anderson, Terry Austin, Liam Bro, Kylie Burke, Shane Godfrey, Penelope Gonzalez, Phoebe Gonzales, Aleyah Henderson, Cameron Hooper, Tyler Hutton, Jillian Knox, Austin Madsen, Sereniti Patterson, Julia Prather, Hanna Prince and Daniel Salazar.

Genevieve Myers and Mimansha Shrestha are serving as stage managers and house managers. Tickets are $5 per person. Because of limited seating and COVID, tickets are currently only available to the families of students participating in the production. There will be NO online sales for this show.

Audience members may be dropped off near the courtyard via the drive-through on the west side of the main building. You must enter through and park in the front parking lot. Because of changes made during construction, there is no longer any parking on the west side of the school.
