"FROM PAGE TO STAGE" TAKES THE STAGE
AHS Drama is collaborating with L.E. White Drama to present “From Page to Stage” March 7-9 with all shows at 6 p.m. to accommodate younger audience members. This family-friendly and audience-interactive production includes four stories by children’s author Robert Munsch, as well as a mini-musical of “Lyle the Crocodile,” which is based upon the original story “Lyle, Lyle Crocodile” by Bernard Waber.
AHS Drama’s goal is to challenge young thespians in all fields of the performing arts. Be it flying actors in shows such as “Peter Pan” and “Mary Poppins,” renting giant dragon puppets to learn to manipulate for “Shrek The Musical,” or performing shows where cast are challenged to line up their movements to hundreds of sound effects in “The Cat and the Hat,” AHS Drama participants can always count on thinking outside of the box.
Students get a truly rounded experience with AHS Drama. They are expected to work in all areas of a performance from singing, acting, and dancing to scene design, prop building, and painting, as well as makeup design and application, light hanging and focusing, and even assisting with choreography.
Since the Performing Art Center’s opening production of “The Sound of Music” in 2003, AHS Drama has presented over 15 musicals and 14 plays impacting hundreds of budding thespians.
