The show must go on is the motto of theaters all around the world. Thespians learn that saying well. The thought process is, no matter the circumstances, as actors, the privilege to perform for an audience is therapeutic for both the actor and the viewer and it needs to happen. If an actor gets sick, the understudy steps up. If a set breaks in the middle of a play, pretend it never happened. Nothing should pull you or your audience out of the illusion you are creating, unless of course you are Ryan Reynolds doing a fourth wall break inside of a fourth wall break, that’s like… 16 walls. Even there, the show went on.
2021 has shown us that the show must go on is just as relevant today as it has been throughout his-tory, and the Hastings High School Drama Club is doing just that. On Friday April 9th, the Drama club will be presenting a Facebook live showing of their performance of “In the blink of an eye”.
“In the Blink of an Eye: Stories of Change and Choices” Seven segments filmed remotely by the ensemble presented together by your hosts: Symone Revlon and Renna Maybelline.
“Hotel” – Gambling and deception.
“Door Dash” – The perils of distracted driving.
“The Recruiter” – You never know what people are into.
“The Singer” – Take nothing for granted.
“Therapy” – Who is watching who.
“Chess” – What could have been.
“Wrong Turn” – What is out in the woods?
To join the online viewing, find the Hastings High School Drama Club on Facebook and give them a follow, there you will find the link once the show is about to begin around 7:00 p.m.
Now, do we say the other traditional theater saying? Break a leg kids!
