Revelstoke Secondary School drama department put on a spectacular show.
In the world of teenagers the crazy six years of junior high and high school shape everyone. Charlie is on the fringe over fringes, Jimmy’s reflection is talking back, Annie’s in love with Josh Kowalski, who’s in love with Lisa, who is blonde. The mean girls are contemplating charity. Josh is trying to explain why he’s just not that into you. Cameron’s dealing with divorced parents and a chemistry test and Jane’s just sick of tests.
It’s about laughing at ourselves, teen parents, teachers and even the lunch ladies.
Though the sets were simple and the costumes based on every-day wear, the show was spectacular.
With around half the script written as monologues, the students took to the stage one at a time to rant about everything from understanding girls, to tests and unfair grades.
The monologues were passionate and convincing, bringing back memories of what it was like to be a teenager.
When there were conversations the students played off each other very well, building relationships even when not many words were said.
The audience had both laughed and wiped away tears by the end of the show.
