PVHS Theater Performances Return with No Restrictions

With a new school year comes many upcoming events and activities. One of which will be two theater productions, including A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Grease. This year will bring back many changes and normality to the theater program. In the most recent production of Romeo and Juliet, the actors had to perform with masks while onstage, and if someone got sick, the show would have been canceled. Without masks on the actors, it will be easier to understand exactly what is being performed. This year PV’s theater program has become larger than ever. Mrs. Allen, PV’s theater teacher and director states, “Our theater program quadrupled in size. We have so many more people this year in both theater and stagecraft so our sets will be more intricate and detailed, and we will have multiple casts because of the amount of actors we have this year.” With so many more people joining, no COVID restrictions, and extra help, this year will see a positive change!

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a comedic play written by William Shakespeare. This play follows many different and loveable characters and their journey in a forest. How will the stories all collide? You may just have to come see the production on November 10, 11, and 12th to find out. Sophomore Jean Sarmiento describes A Midsummer Night’s Dream as, “a messy comedic romance.” The show will also include “Magical Creatures in and out of the audience, great costuming, a summer night with mischief.” Come see it because it’s fun, has great acting, and a great night. You will not want to miss this exciting play!
