Tackling the challenge of running their own show, young students from the Acting I class presented a drama and a comedy.

“Requiem” mixed Acting I students with the Advanced Acting class for a dark look at war and the agonizing choice a mother makes.


J. Edgar (the grandpa) wisecracks with one of his granddaughters in “All in the Cards.”

On a lighter note, the Acting I students with help from the Advanced Acting class put on “All in the Cards,” about a family with an Archie Bunker type grandfather overseeing a house full of rambunctious teenagers, sullen children, and a sassy ex-wife.
