Lights dim, voices quiet, and curtains open for the drama classes final performance. “Having your friends there and performing with them takes away some of the nerves,” said Junior Mara Hayes, who played Marcy in the play on January 11 and 12.

The children’s play is written by the drama class and is performed for the elementary students. “There was a lot of pressure performing for the small kids because they laugh at just about everything,” said Senior Victoria Rollings, who played Snoopy in the play.

Even though the play was just for kids, doesn’t mean it was any easier for the cast. “For one of my parts I had to be very held back and simple so it was kind of difficult flipping between that and Charlie Brown,” said Senior Tyler Russell. Russell also participates in the One Act, which will perform January 26.

With some students participating in both drama and one act, confusion could easily burden these actors. “Repetition is really important, going over your lines everyday is the best thing to do,” said Senior Ashlee Martie.

As the curtain closed on this production,  it also closes for the end of the semester.
