“Gruesome Playground Injuries by Raijiv Joseph”

Grade: A

An accident-prone boy (Doug) and guarded girl (Kayleen), meet in an elementary school nurse’s office with a head injury from jumping off the school’s roof and a stomach ache, respectively. Over the next 30 years, these star-crossed lovers meet again and again, brought together by injuries, heartaches, and their own self-destructive tendencies.

The actors Jillian Alston (Kayleen) and Zac Aaron (Doug) brought tears, laughter, and more to the crowd . With only a few stuttering mistakes, the play was a smash hit filled with compassion and humor. The heartwarming and heart breaking play was directed by senior,  Ashlynn Lindsey. Raijiv Joseph would be so proud.


“Check Please by Jonathan Rand”

Grade: A-

Check Please shows us how first dates can go wrong. Guy and Girl sit a few feet away from each other dating one lunatic at time, such as a crazy Chicago Bears fan or a raging kleptomaniac.

The comedic play directed by seniors, Becca Bishop and Emily Smith, eased the hearts of the audience and nearly made them fall out of their seats laughing. The cast put on a hysterical show with their skills with only little mistakes. Jillian Alston and Ed Bonning played Girl and Guy, respectively.


“Booby Trap by Ed Monk”

Grade: B+

Robert Nott Pete Galen, an american soldier, sits in a combat zone, with an anti-personnel mine trapped between him and the tree he leans against. As he waits to see what will happen to him, his past, present, and future unfold around him.

“Booby Trap” formerly known as “Booby in the Trap”  is a tough play to act, but Kathryn Braswell and Nicci Farland did a good job in directing and casting. The cast did a wonderful job in catching the eyes of the watchers. They had them on the edge of their seats during the whole experience. The Soldier played Noen Eubanks put on an emotional performance as well as Jillian Alston, who starred as Caitlyn, the soldier’s wife.
