Join us for the Annual Shakespeare Competition in which students prepare/memorize one of the required monologues found on this link. It is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, January 19 after school in the choir room, pending judges availability. The winner will move on to the state competition on Sunday, February 13. The state winner gets an all-expense paid trip to New York for the National Shakespeare Competition!
If you are anything like me, you have been excited to see what successes we can have in the Grandview Theatre Department following the amazing journey that was Freaky Friday. Next in our string of yearly productions is the Freshman/Sophomore show, rehearsing from January 4th to the show dates of February 17, 18th, and 19th. With such a short window of rehearsal, it is important that we have a production we can sink our teeth into and have some fun with. With that, we are proud to be performing
“The action of The Visit takes place in the small town of Guellen, “somewhere in Central Europe.” An elderly millionairess, Claire Zachanassian, returns to Guellen, her home town, after an absence of many years. Merely on the promise of her millions, she shortly turns what has been a depressed area into a boom town. But there is a condition attached to her largess, which the natives of Guellen realize only after they have become enmeshed in her vengeful plot: murder. Out of these elements, Durrenmatt has fashioned a many-leveled play which is at once a macabre parable, a deeply moving tragedy, and a scathing indictment of the power of greed. ”
I look forward to seeing what we can create together. Please follow the links below if you are interested in participating in the Freshman/Sophomore show of The Visit.
