A Closer Look at the GrowZone Players’ One Act Play

a

The last post recapped the awesome event in November, ARTrageous, which featured art in all forms and concluded with a one-act play from our GrowZone Players. The play was St. George and the Dragon, written and adapted by school drama director, Ryan Bender.

The GrowZone Players are our troupe of actors.  Students in 5th-8th grades have the opportunity each year to choose the drama elective and, as such, audition for roles in the annual fall one-act play and the spring musical.

This year’s one-act play told the story of a king, a dragon and a band of royal court misfits that ultimately saved the day. It was laugh-out-loud funny, well performed and pure entertainment for all in attendance.

The ever growing and changing list of members of our GrowZone Player troupe never cease to amaze audiences with their performances. They manage to take a script and bring it to life in a skilled and professional manner far exceeding their individual ages.

Be sure to take every opportunity to see the GrowZone Players’ productions. They are not to be missed!
