There is one event that everyone looks forward to attending right before Thanksgiving break where some of St. Mark's most talented students showcase their incredible acting skills in a wonderful production in our very own Black Box Theater. That’s right everyone – the fall play is just around the corner!!
In the past month, actors Kaela Dunne ‘18, Rachel Hwang ‘18, Matthew Gates ‘19, Angela Li’ 19, Reevie Fenstermacher ‘19, Anu Akibu ‘20, Ilia Rebechar ‘20, and Riley Scott ‘21)their director, Mr. Kent, and the stage crew have been working diligently on the latest fall production, Noises Off. This play is different from the past ones because it is a PLAY WITHIN A PLAY.
Each actor is playing a character who is another actor in the inside play, Nothing On. For example, actor Kaela Dunne is playing character A who, in the play, plays character B. Actors play actors- sounds intriguing doesn’t it?
While conversing with Kaela, I got some insights on the new play. Kaela hinted, “Be sure to look out for the set – it is very unique and different than anything St. Mark’s theater has used in the past. I don't want to give away too much though!” She also mentioned that “the show is lively, funny and dramatic as ever. Mr. Kent believes that it is the toughest show we've done at St. Mark's, but the challenge will be worth it.”
Be sure to come out and support the students for this highly-anticipated play between November 15th-17th. Look out for an email from Mr. Kent in mid-November to reserve a seat at the Black Box The
