In addition to pep rallies, football games, and school dances, Seminole High offers another source of entertainment: theatre. Not only are students encouraged to attend the productions performed by the Seminole High School Theatre Co. (SHSTC), they are encouraged to take part in them.

Junior Gabriel Burgos said, “The experience of having friends become family and the feeling you get when you’re performing” is just some of the benefits of joining theatre.

The first show will take place in October and is based on the famous James Dean flick, Rebel Without a Cause. This action packed drama will follow the troubled lives of a gang of teenagers.

When it Rains Gasoline is the competition One-Act and will be performed at the showcase held in February. The One-Act is a play performed by Thespians at District Competition and is scored by three judges. Senior Alexia Taylor and junior Alex Lowie will be working together to student direct this honest production about the hardships teenagers face.

“I’m looking for people to find themselves in this One-Act; there’s so many characters that students can relate to,” said Taylor.

To end the year, the performing arts department will be showcasing their talents in the Judy Garland classic, The Wizard of Oz. It takes the orchestra, chorus, and drama department to combine their talents to produce a musical every two years.

“I’m looking forward to The Wizard of Oz because everyone can enjoy a feel-good musical,” said senior Lauren Rodriguez.

By attending shows, students may have the opportunity to earn extra credit in some classes. Make sure to buy your ticket in advance from any Thespian and enjoy the show!
