RSS Drama presents Toy School and Love is a Hot Fudge Sundae

RSS Drama will present two performances of the their new double-bill show on Jan. 13 and Jan. 14.

The show features performances of Love is a Hot Fudge Sundae and Toy School, and will be presented by grade 9 and 10 drama students.

Love is a Hot Fudge Sundae explores issues of school cliques and peer pressure, showing the darker side of teenage life, mixed with humour.

RSS Drama teacher Theresa Browning says the message of the play, although challenging, is uplifting, showing “cliques shouldn’t matter – you are who you are.”

Toy School deals with issues of self-esteem and learning to believe in yourself. The actors portray toys that have come to the Toy School to learn how to develop and become perfect toys for their future owners.

The Times Review dropped by for part of the the dress rehearsal of Toy School, which features elaborate, colourful costumes and a script adapted by the students to feature special, often humorous references to Revelstoke.

In addition to the scheduled shows, there will be special performances for elementary school classes.

Showtimes are Thursday, Jan. 13 and Friday Jan. 14 at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for students, 10 and unders free. Tickets can be purchased at the RSS office or at the door. Call 250-837-2173 for other ticket info.

The RSS senior drama group will be presenting the play Juvie by Jerome McDonough in June of this year.
