In 2021, there were barely enough students to support a cast for the production. Now, just two years later, the Drama Club is hosting two productions to accommodate the growing cast of students.
The CCS Drama Club and Hubbard Hall are excited to announce the lineup and schedule of the fall productions.
The productions are “The Play That Goes Wrong” by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields and “S.P.A.R.,” a one-act play by Stephen Gregg. Join the inept and accident-prone Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society for their opening night production of the 1920s murder mystery play “The Murder At Haversham Manor.” A play within a play, this comedy explores what happens when disaster ensues onstage and behind the scenes.
There will be four performances of the production on the Hubbard Hall Mainstage beginning Thursday, Oct. 26.
- Oct. 26, 7 p.m.
- Oct. 27, 7 p.m.
- Oct. 28, 2 p.m. & 7 p.m.
- Oct. 29, 2 p.m.
- $10 for adults
- $5 for students (21 and under)
- CCS employees can attend for the discounted $5 price
The productions include audience involvement and are sure to make you laugh throughout.
“This play has been really fun to be in,” said Drama Club member and CCS senior Kateri Murphy. “We laugh throughout rehearsal. As a senior, this is a great way to go out with our last fall play.”
The productions are also generating more interest in Drama Club participation.
“We have a really diverse group of 7th-12th graders,” said Drama Club member and CCS senior Coral Boehlke. “It is nice to see a mix of ages and everyone is working really well together. It is amazing having a bigger cast this year and getting more young students interested. The choice of productions indicates a growing popularity in theater and our program.”
Overall, student interest in the arts is on the rise. In addition to growing numbers in the drama club, participation in band has nearly tripled since the start of the school year.
“It is great to see so many students interested in the arts,” said Secondary Principal Caroline Goss. “We have many talented students at CCS and we are committed to expanding program opportunities for them to explore their interests. We hope to see the number of interested students continue to grow to allow the programs to thrive.”
