Correlieu Secondary School’s Grade 11 and 12 theatre classes will be performing Third Class by Brad Slaight, a comedy about the lives of high school students on Monday and Tuesday evening next week (Dec. 17-18).
The cast of around 20 performers will take on multiple roles, with approximately 40 characters appearing in the 1.5 hour play.
Hayden Hill, one of the actors getting set for his performance next week, says playing multiple parts is fun, but can be a bit chaotic.
“When you lose your props, it can get hectic! But most of the [costume changes] are easy,” he says.
Hill describes the play as “a look into everyday teenage life, from being bullied, dumped and going on the first date. And it shows that our lives at home affect us at school too.”
Teacher Earl Tourangeau directs the play, and a student stage manager is co-ordinating events behind the scenes.
The classes have been rehearsing since the beginning of the semester, and are ready to show their work to audiences Dec. 17-18. Doors open at 6 p.m., and entry is by donation, with all proceeds going to the local food bank.
