Bring On The Drama


Myla Lahti, Director of Social Media

The South Shore Drama Club is hosting their annual production at South Shore High School on Friday, November 3rd, at 2:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. The second production is Saturday, November 4th, starting with a dinner theater at 6:00 p.m, and the play following at 7:00 p.m. There are two separate productions going on each night. First is the elementary/middle school followed by the high school. The cost to watch both plays on Friday is $5. The Saturday performance costs $5, but if you would like dinner theater tickets they are $15.

This year the South Shore Drama Club decided to change things up. They are having two different plays which consist of a high school and elementary/middle school production. In the past, the Drama Club had one big production including all grades. Mrs. Lallemont is the director again this year and is finding the change to be necessary. “This year I chose to change it because for one I am going on maternity leave so it could not be in the spring and I was trying to see if there was interest in high school to perform a one act play at the state level in the future.” This year the high school production stars six actors and three backstage crew members. The high school production, since it is so small, is only a one act play. The plot line is a group of actors trying to write a script about a murder. The high school has had very few practices due to the students’ commitment to other after school activities, but when they get together it is a blast.

The Drama productions are going to include a dinner Saturday night only. The dinner will include four different varieties of soup and salad as well as an assortment of desserts and drinks. That night both levels will be performing starting with the younger students, followed by the high schoolers. This year, the dinner is a buffet style so feel free to come at your leisure. In past years, there were servers that would bring your food out for you, but they decided to change it up this year.

The elementary/middle school production has twenty-six students. The elementary/middle school’s production is called Gran’s Guide To Stop An Ogre. It is about what to do if someone is getting bullied. ┬áThis type of play is known as a social awareness piece. Sixth grader Kiley Mueller likes this drama production because it is a new group and it is challenging as they only have ten practices. Another sixth grader Gracelyn Lovejoy stated, “I like drama. I like how it comes together in the end.”

Make sure you come out to see both productions on November 3rd and 4th!
