High School Theatre Festival November 25, 2013
Each year the department sponsors a High School Theatre Festival, which serves 300-350 high school students and their teachers with workshops, a production and even lunch.
This year’s production is The Women of Lockerbie by Deborah Brevoort. Directed by Mimi Kammer.
“A mother from New Jersey roams the hills of Lockerbie Scotland, looking for her son’s remains which were lost in the crash of Pan Am 103. She meets the Women of Lockerbie, who are fighting the US Government to obtain the clothing of the victims found in the plane’s wreckage. The women, determined to convert an act of hatred into an act of love, want to wash the clothes of the dead and return them to the victim’s families. The Women of Lockerbie is loosely inspired by a true story, although the characters and situations in the play are purely fictional. Written in the structure of a Greek tragedy, it is a poetic drama about the triumph of love over hate.”
Registration for this event will begin October 28. If you are a high school teacher and you want to make sure you receive updates on this event, please email Leisha Wadle, theatre department administrative assistant, at email@example.com.
