Director Ben Cossiter addresses the drama club at the first meeting of the year. Drama club will present a fall and spring play.

The drama club has been working tirelessly for the past couple weeks preparing for their fall play.

The result: “The Complete Works of Willaim Shakespeare: Abridged,” a fun collage of many spoofs and funny skits.

“It’s like Saturday Night Live if they did Shakespeare skits,” Director Ben Cossiter said.

It will be a play like none other. In fact, the aren’t any “lead roles” as one may think of them.

“… the show is divided into skits, different sections for different plays, different sections focus on different kids,” Cossiter said.

This has not only been a struggle for the director but for the actors as well. 

“The adrenaline rush of your first time being up on stage. Once you get past the nervousness; however, you realize that it isn’t that bad after all, and it becomes a lot easier to endure,” senior actress Adrianna Huss said.

The play will be divided into different spoofs based on the works of Shakespeare. There will a varity skits for many favorites including: “Romeo and Juliet”, “Titus Andronicus” and “Othello”; the Comedies, Spoofs of the other tragedies including “Macbeth”, “Julius Caesar”,“Antony & Cleopatra” and “Hamlet”.

Tickets will be sold at the door on Nov. 1 and 2. $5 for students and $8 for adults.
