The Turkey Hill School Drama Club is proud to announce this year’s production, “Halloween, Again!”, an original play written by THS Drama Club Director, Deborah Sansone and four Turkey Hill Students; Claire DeRosa, Josh Rosewater, Gary McVety and Ella Fairty. The club’s 9th show will premiere on April 5th at 7:00 p.m. and April 6th at 6:00 p.m.
The writing team began meeting once a week in the spring and continued to work through the summer developing characters, discussing plots and writing scenes. “After our show this year, one of the 6th grade actors mentioned that he was inspired to start writing,” says Deborah Sansone, THS Drama Club Director. “It gave me the idea to involve the kids not only in the acting and production of the show, but to get them writing their own story.”
This year’s show is about three middle school girls who bully their friends at a school Halloween party. Before the teachers can do anything about it, a powerful witch casts a spell on the girls, causing them to re-live the night over and over again until they have learned to be kind.
“It’s going to be an exciting year for our kids,” says Sansone, “We have an original show written by our club and we also received a grant from the Jaime A. Hulley Arts Foundation. We intend to use the funds from the grant to acquire acting and dance instruction to make our show a success.”
Tickets to the Turkey Hill School Drama Club’s production of “Halloween, Again” will go on sale March 1, 2019 and will be available at Turkey Hill School.
Ella and Claire work on the script for the Turkey Hill School Drama Club’s original production of “Halloween, again!”
