Student-produced play open to all in the community, free of charge
Students from The RSEC Academy High School will present an original play, An RSEC Galactic Adventure, at noon on Thursday, May 24, at The Amato Center for the Performing Arts, 56 Mont Vernon Street, in Milford. The play is a result of a year-long project where students learned about all aspects of theatre, including playwriting, set design, lighting, costuming, and acting. There is no charge to attend the performance, and the community is invited to attend. Donations are welcome and accepted.
“I truly believe that theatre must be in every school, through classes and activities. Theatre doesn’t discriminate and accepts all. It gives students the chance to risk it all, but yet still feel safe,” said Bridgette Doucette Howell, a teacher at The RSEC Academy and the leader of the high school and middle school’s theatre arts program. “This process of watching students who haven’t participated in the arts before learn the ins and outs to create a show from nothing has been simply amazing. I am incredibly proud of the students and the staff who have supported them throughout this journey. It’s going to be a fantastic experience for everyone to see on May 24.”
An RSEC Galactic Adventure is about learning and about how to help and accept each other. The play begins with the students leaving for their senior trip and trouble ensues when they don’t work together with each other. Throughout the course of the play the audience will wonder: will they figure it out? Will they ever get home?
