End of the year!

Now that the school year is officially over, it’s time for a year-end review!

In many ways, this was our most successful year ever. Student Body placed second at the regional one act competition and won awards for Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actress. More importantly, representatives from Southern Crescent, AV Pride and our own SRO spoke before each performance about underage drinking, social hosting laws, and sexual assault. Through ticket sales and donations, we raised over $1700 dollars for Southern Crescent Sexual Assault and Child Advocacy Center.

Will and Josh, the student directors, and the cast did a hilarious job with the Fun Act, Brothers Grimm Spectacularthon.

Little Women continued our streak of excellent musicals. It had a smaller cast, but all of the performances were astonishing (sorry, I had to)!

Advanced Drama put on four(!) plays and two ten minute plays, including Bobby Trap, where we raised $500 for Healing4Heroes.

(As a side note, over the past four years we have raised over $10,000 for local charities, including Promise Place.)

The tech theater class went through all of the old year books and as far as we can tell, there has never been this many theater productions at McIntosh.

It will be hard to top this year, but we are already working on making next year even better!

Little Women: The Broadway Musical!

You will laugh, you will cry, you will fall in love with the extraordinary girls of the March Family in this musical version of the classic story. Little Women is February 1 at 7pm and February 2nd at 2pm and 7pm. Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for students. They can be reserved by emailing info@mcintoshtheater.org, and can also be purchased at the door.

Drama I assignment for January 15

If you would rather answer the questions on your computer, you can copy the questions below into a google doc.

 

Character Worksheet

Actor’s Name:_________________________ Character’s Name:_________________

Some of your answers will come from the script and some you will have to decide based on what you know about the character. For instance, it would not make sense for Travis’s favorite type of music to be classical music; rock or country music would be a much better fit.

What grade are you in and how old are you?

Describe your family life. Include who you live with and where you live (house, apartment).

How would you describe yourself? (i.e. moody, temperamental, calm, passive, quiet, etc.)

How intelligent are you and how do you do in school (look at the language your character uses)?

What is your social status? Are you wealthy, poor or middle-class?

What is your best trait? Your worst trait?

Who are you closest to in the play? Who are you friends with and who do you not like?

What do you love to do?

Who or what bugs you the most?

What about yourself are you most proud of?

How would you like to be remembered?

What frightens you?

What do you want more than everything?

What are your life goals?

What is your favorite song or type of music?

What is your favorite movie, TV show or book?

What type of animal are you most like? Explain.

 

Advanced Drama Assignment for January 15

You should look for war poems and war songs. A google search of “war poems” will list lots of sites. Ideally we would have poems from many different wars. You may want to check with Ms. Hodge as well – the media center probably has a few For war songs, look for ones that somehow fit in with Booby Trap – “War Ensemble” by Slayer would not work.

You should create a doc for the poems you think we should consider.

If you have time, you could also start designing a poster for the show.

Student Body

It has been an absolute honor to work with this cast and crew on Student Body. They gave everything they had, and gave their best and rawest performance at the competition. I could not have asked for more from them, and they were incredible, leaving many in the audience in tears. Ava was named Best Actress, Iain was named Best Actor, Grace was named Best Supporting Actress, and Emma and Lydia were named to the All Star Cast. We all would have loved to advance to state, but they can hold their head high knowing they gave everything they had, and knowing that they touched many lives through their courage and willingness to take on such an important and relevant topic. And, through their performances at school, they raised $1700 for the Southern Crescent Sexual Assault and Child Advocacy Center. This has been an experience of a lifetime, and I am humbled by the casts’ talent, commitment and compassion.IMG_0909
