Not only is Our Town a true drama, but it is traditionally performed with almost no scenery or props. Each setting is abstractly described by the Stage Manager.
"It has been challenging for the students to accept the 'minimal' idea, but it has made them better actors," Gotham said. "It certainly is different for them, but they are doing really well. It's what theatre is all about; connecting with the audience."
Computer teacher Tom Dodd will assist with lights and technical direction while home and consumer sciences teacher Marsha Roy and retired teacher Peggy Plank are in charge of costumes. Library assistant Pattie McConvey has also been assisting with the production.
Performances are scheduled for Nov. 11-13, at 7 p.m. in the Lake Placid Middle-High School auditorium. Tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for students with proceeds to benefit the Bridget Stewart Scholarship Fund and the drama club.
"Balancing soccer, cross country,volleyball, the dessert theatre, school work, and work is an accomplishment," said Gotham. "I love that our students do so much and still perform at a high level. I hope people get to see the kids perform because of their hard work."
