Unity Composite High School is once again ready to present their winter production. Shows are Dec. 11 and 12 at 7 p.m.
UCHS has had a long-standing drama program that has offered an additional outlet for students who love the arts and performing. Drama teachers and directors audition as soon as school returns in September and once their cast and crew are selected, rehearsals begin. Greg Bick, long time drama teacher, director and scriptwriter, says, “We started in September with 20 plus actors and a dozen crew.”
This year’s production Weekend at the Hotel di Morte is a two act play written by Mr. Bick and is about a couple who stays at a hotel with many weird characters. The play is set in the 1980s and includes a couple of plot twists and a whole lot of throwback attire as well as a great set design.
Students from Grades 7 to 12 are involved in this year’s production. Some of the characters include a mime, a crazy Italian chef, a hypochondriac, valley girls and many more memorable parts.
This year’s performance will also include a live band during intermission, and the always popular dessert theatre on the second night of performances.
