This is a year like no other for the Golden Bear Drama Club and Director Twila Bridges. Unlike previous years, the date of competition this yea was a month earlier. ACHS has been know to explore the more diverse genres of theatre in the last few years taking a plethora a good shows to Drama Fest. This year, Director Twila Bridges took it to whole new level with the show titled “Emotional Baggage.”
This play is an exploration of emotional baggage. We all have it; how do we deal with it? Do we deal with it at all? Each of the characters in the play has emotional baggage, which is physicalized by the piece of luggage that they carry around with them.
The play has no words - the story is told through action and gesture. The background music will play a large part of our show. We are using Vivaldi's Four Seasons.
This play was written by Lindsay Price and published through Theatrefolk.
The wonderful cast:
Taylor Armstrong, Brayden Ballard, Alex Barnett, Mykaela Brown, Sara Ellsworth, Cadence Hill, Maggie Kate Rhoads, Mackenzie Trest, and Tyler Walker.
The amazing crew:
Maggie Crum, Allie Huddleston, Taylor Kennedy, Elijah Voyles, Olivia Walker, and Norah Kate Wilhite.
We are wishing the AC Drama Club the best of luck to their performance with MTA’s North MS Drama Fest!
