Vernon Secondary School drama students are getting a taste of theatre life this semester as they prepare to stage two productions, Geoff Bamber’s adaption of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Brian Hampton’s Gossip, next week.
The school’s drama instructor, Laurie Anne Lorge, who is helming both productions describes them as “updated, modern and loose,” adaptations, that will engage both adult and student audiences.
The productions include a cast and crew of 60 VSS drama students, and will be presented consecutively, as an 1.5 show with no intermission.
The curtain rises on Jan.23. The show runs until Jan.26 nightly at 7:30. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door, or by calling 250.545.0701.
