Like they have for the past few years, the Theater class is preparing for their annual play. They have been rehearsing and practicing since the beginning of the year and are starting to feel prepared. 

Theater Class Instructor and Art Teacher, Erin Allen, tells how her class began to prepare early on. 

Early on we delve into the time period and situations of the characters. We watch a version of the production. Characters are assigned using auditions, and then we work to build our unique characters from the inside out – movement, voice, and costuming,” said Allen. 

The play, “Oliver Jr.”, will take place in the RCHS auditorium March 21, 22, and 23. On each of these days, the play will begin at 7 pm. The students are excited to perform it in front of a live audience. 

Allen also explains if she thinks the students will be prepared for the play. 

“I absolutely think they will be ready! The theater students this year are super committed and taking instruction beautifully. I can’t wait,” said Allen. 

Third year theater class student, junior Lena Greer, shares information about her role and her favorite part about the play. 

“I play Nancy and my favorite part about the play is working with my best friends and seeing the results from our hard work,” said Greer. 

Working hard and working together is so important during the preparation for the performance. 

Senior Bee Sacket, playing Mr. Bumble, gave us their favorite part about their role. 

“I play Mr. Bumble and my favorite part of the play is selling Oliver or locking her in a coffin,” said Sackett. 

These students have worked very hard to bring this amazing show together. Please be sure to come out and support them on the 21, 22, and 23.
