Truckee High School Drama Club prepares for winter performance
TRUCKEE, Calif.— Ladies and gentlemen, take your seats and prepare to be delighted.
Members of the Truckee High School Drama Club have been rehearsing a collection of scenes and monologues for months. “Thee and Thou and Now” will be presented by Truckee High School Drama Club on Jan. 9, 10 and 11, 7 p.m. at the Truckee High School Auditorium, 11725 Donner Pass Road. Tickets are $10 adults, $8 students and will be available at the door. Call 530-386-1929 for more information.
Well-known works from Shakespeare, “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” and the classic Abbott and Costello bit, “Who’s on First?” will be paired with lesser-known pieces from “Almost Maine” and others.
The actors are preparing for the Lenaea Theater Festival at the end of January, where many of these pieces will be entered for competition.
The Lenaea Theater Festival offers three days of workshops, where high school actors from Northern California perform in front of working theater professionals from across the country, known as “Respondents.”
The Respondents view and critique the performances and award medals in monologues, duo scenes, one-act plays, and musical theater performances.
The top scoring performances in each category are invited for Command Performances on the final afternoon, to be held at Stage One of the Harris Center for the Arts/Three Stages at Folsom Lake College.
At last year’s festival, Truckee High School participants received a Gold medal in Duo Scenes and the Respondent’s Choice Award in Monologues.
Mark your calendars and give these actors a chance to perform for you.
Local businesses can support youth and the arts though donations of cash or items for the silent auction.
For more information, contact this year’s producer Barbara Wilkinson at 530-386-1929 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
