Sarah, Sarah Provided A Cultural Experience
After about eight weeks of rehearsal, Parkwoodâ€™s Drama Club performed Sarah, Sarah, a play about three generations of an immigrant Jewish family and their relationships.
Parkwood Drama teacher Patrick Antonucci chose this play because it had an interesting story line and was a good way to help our students learn about different cultures, embracing our schools globalization theme. The play was performed the last weekend of October and the first weekend of November.
The cast included some theater â€œveteransâ€ who had experience with performing, but there were also some students who were new to the stage. Parkwood junior Michael Lewis played â€œArthur.â€ When asked about being in Sarah, Sarah, he said â€œWith Sarah, Sarah I found bliss. I absolutely loved being in the play. I want to be in every play from now until I graduate! If you haven't tried theater, or taken a theater class, you definitely should. It's so amazing!â€
Whatâ€™s next for the Drama Club? They are already preparing for their next show, Bits â€˜nâ€™ Pieces, a collection of three one-act plays, which has a curtain date set in January. There will also be a spring musical, Guys and Dolls. So stay tuned to see what entertaining shows Parkwoodâ€™s students will perform next!
