The Revelstoke Secondary School drama program has been known to put out many different theatre productions that people have always enjoyed. This year is no different.
This semester’s theatre class consists of many ninth and tenth graders, as well as four senior students who take the roles of directors and scriptwriters.
Their task was to separate their classmates into groups then write out short scripts to suit said actors. Then the four directors spent a lot of time handpicking their groups to make things perfect.
From there they came up with the theme of giving. And within that theme came each director’s own personal theme. They are themes such as hope, compassion, honesty and love.
As soon as the scripts were finalized the students flew into action, memorizing lines, finding props and costumes, deciding upon blocking.
The students are gearing up to perform their masterpieces on December 16 and 17. Each piece will begin with a hint into how each one will play out.
Hope starts off the performance, followed by Compassion, Honesty, and finally, Love — with an ending to remember.
Don’t miss out on seeing this completely student run performance, The Four Gifts of Giving, at the Revelstoke Performing Art Centre on Dec. 16–17 at 7 p.m
