Drama students are busily preparing this week for Drama Fest, which will be on Thursday, Nov. 1 at 6:30 p.m.  Admission is $5.

Students will present their individual events in categories for monologues, dialogues, pantomime, reader’s theatre and musical theatre, in both contemporary and classical styles. The one-act, The Perfect Ending, is scheduled for 8:00.

Drama Fest helps prepare students for the district drama competition, which is this weekend.  This is a precursor to the state Trumbauer Drama Festival at the University of North Alabama held in December.

Drama fest is intended to be a practice run for the actors. “This is the only event where all of the drama classes come together and showcase their talents,” Mrs. Davis said.

“I’m in drama because I love performing, and I love the atmosphere. I love being able to express myself and it gives me the chance to meet a lot of really cool people,” Hannah Hossley, a student from Intermediate Drama said.

Drama Fest is also a great opportunity for the actors to showcase their talents and gauge audience feedback before the judged competition, and in general, it’s a learning opportunity for everyone who attends.  “They learn self-confidence and better communication skills,” Mrs. Davis stated. “Also, just by watching, you can learn a thing or two about how to hold yourself when talking and how to make yourself look strong.”
