When asked if she was excited to be putting on a play, the first in all the years Ms. Smith has taught here, Ms. Rachel Brown exclaimed, “Very excited! Central students needed the opportunity to get on stage and perform. Theater was a missing art here at Central, so it’s very exciting to bring in back. The name of the play is “Horror Movie 101: Failing Can Be Deadly.” How do you get ready to perform a play? “We rehearse. We practice the lines and they practice where they’re going to move on stage and we also practice with our special effects and our costumes. We have scene pieces and backdrops we have to get ready. There’s lots of parts to a play and video production. There are 11 actors and we’ll perform it on October 30th.” When asked if there were lots of costume changes, Ms. Brown said, “This is not a show that requires a lot of different costumes, but there are some pieces we’ll have that require blood, and we’ll use costumes for those scenes.”

When asked if she’d ever been in a play, Mrs. Brown, Drama teacher, said, “I’ve been in hundreds of plays! I did theater from the time I was in 4th grade, all the way to the professional level as an adult. I like to do warm ups with the cast and for at least three or four minutes before I go on stage, I have to be in total solitude. I don’t like other people around, so I can mentally get my head in the game and prepare for on stage.” When asked why she decided to become a drama teacher, she responded, “Because of my passion for theater! I wanted to share that with young people, who will be taking over the business of theater.”
