The theater program has knocked out its first three performances, and has begun working towards preparing for UIL One Act Play.

The department hosted its first three plays these past few months, beginning with the “Anatomy of Gray”. After, they performed its Renaissance show, “A Doctor in Spite of Himself”, and concluded the semester with its children’s show, “Charlotte’s Web.”

Anatomy of Gray

Senior Justin Olds was the lead of their first performance. He played the character of Dr. Gray, a doctor who was forced to take shelter in a small town.  

“The chemistry within the cast was amazing,” Olds said. “There was a little drama here and there but nothing too big. We were all very cooperative with each other and we were all collaborating together to get the show on point.”

A Doctor in Spite of Himself

Following their first play, theater classes began producing their annual Renaissance show. This year’s show was named “A Doctor in Spite of Himself” and included Sophomore Donavon Crimm as the character Lucas.

“I enjoyed the characters in the (Renaissance) much more because Charlotte’s web is a very ‘already done’ play,” Crimm said. “With the renaissance, it was a play that we basically made, and could change the characters however we want and give them whatever life we want. The loose details on the character allowed me to make my character Lucas whatever way I envisioned him in my head.”

Charlotte’s Web

Soon they concluded their long-run with its children’s show “Charlotte’s Web”. Sophomore Julian Mendez was the lead character, Wilbur. An unfortunate pig who is saved by a clever spider.

“The children’s show is taken a lot less seriously, so you can have a lot more fun with it and put a lot more character into it,” Mendez said. “It’s a lot less stressful.”

The theatre department will begin to produce their UIL One Act Play later next year.
