If you’re spending a lot of time at home right now, you know it can be a challenge to keep yourself occupied. Luckily, “10 Ways to Survive Life in a Quarantine” is full of wacky solutions, from putting on a musical with a complete cast of cats, to becoming an announcer for a made-up sport, to falling in love with a basketball. Join our host and co-host as we make light of what we are all struggling with in fun-filled, relatable ways. We promise we will bring you a laugh while we are all are stuck at home.

The option for additional “Deficit Dollars” is to offer you an opportunity to help us refill the coffers of the Theatre Department caused by the deficit of performances this school year. Because our access to ticket dollars has been so low this year, we will be entering the 2021-2022 school year with very limited funds for costumes, sets, guest directors, etc. If you are able to support the activities of this class during the coming year, we appreciate your contributions to their future performances.

Inspired by the work of the New York Neo-Futurists, TOO MUCH LIGHT: SPELLED BACKWARDS IS RACE CAR is a compilation of short plays written by the Junior Theatre class. There are 30 plays in total: some comedy, some drama, and some sea shanty. Audience members are invited to interact during the show. The order in which the plays will be presented is chosen on the spot by the audience. The performance will be streamed on the TWITCH platform. Come support the Junior class in their production of TOO MUCH LIGHT: SPELLED BACKWARDS IS RACE CAR.

We are live streaming through TWITCH! While you can view the stream WITHOUT a Twitch account, you can only comment WITH a Twitch account. That being said, if you want to interact during the show, which is highly encouraged, please create an account prior to the show. It is an easy process, and the site will walk you through it. There will be a countdown to the show starting 30 minutes prior to each showing. At 10 minutes until the show, the theatre class of 2022 will be PARTYING in preparation for the show! We encourage you to join us, so we can get excited together!

TML is traditionally a show that you pay at the door to get in. The cost is $5 PLUS the roll of a dice. So anywhere from $6 to $11 per person. The money raised by ticket sales is the budget for this years junior class senior project next year. The amount you choose to pay to get “in” to this show will also support next year’s projects for this same class.

INTERMEDIATE PLAYS JAN. 28-30, 2021 at 7 p.m.

The Intermediate play series – WORD ON THE STREET – was a student created verbatim style performance with the intention of illuminating social issues through a compilation of realistic monologues. The students conducted interviews with individuals from our community that explored social justice issues ranging from gender expression, effects from Covid on ER staff, immigration, to the foster care system. Students transcribed the interviews and the show was built with the intent of using a critical lens on social justice issues to educate and inspire people to move towards a brighter and better future for all.

ONE ACTS – ADVANCED THEATRE – WINTER 2020/2021

Seniors prepared and directed their junior peers in 30 minute One Act PlayS. Due to Covid 19, these plays are being presented as short films. This project is a culmination of the entire DSA Theatre curriculum training. Students are taught text analysis, dramaturgy, set design, costume design, light design, sound design, acting techniques and directing.
