Drama club acts in a one-act
A play within a play, a little Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, sword fights, dances, a dancing bear, or what you will were all part of the fare served up by the drama students of Pine Bluffs High School (PBHS) drama club last Tuesday night.
The night with the Bard saw the Pine Bluffs students perform the one act, Bill Shx Presents: All's Well that Ends, written by Jaime Cruz of Casper. This is the fourth play by Cruz to be performed by the drama club.
"PBHS Drama always gets a wonderful group of kids. We have kids that are involved in many different things, but made it a point to attend rehearsals bright and early. Unlike original Shakespearean productions, our girls outnumber our boys by a ton," said Ashley Rousseau, sponsor of the drama club.
There were scenes from Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Midsummer's Night Dream, Tempest, Twelfth Night, and have characters from Julius Caesar and The Winter's Tale, too.
Adrianna Schultz, Taylor Crouse, Amber Abrams, Maddie Fornstrom, Savannah Norman, Jose Baca-Martinez, Sydnie Fornstrom, Julian Baca-Martinez, Kenzie Graves, Mady Graves, Laine Vasko and Natalie Christofferson were the actors of the evening. Alyssa Miller served as the stage manager and had a small roll in the production. Nicole Kimble was the lead set designer, for which she received praise from Rousseau.
Sydnie Fornstrom, who played the dancing bear in the production, received the most laughs of the evening for her performance upstage of Jose Baca-Martinez and Kenzie Graves, the Captain and Viola, respectively, from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night.
