for Drama Festival on March 9
Hosting 5 schools for the drama festival in addition to performing our own show
is a big undertaking. Six shows, 40-minutes each, will be presented throughout the day for the audience and the judges. Snacks will be for sale in the lobby. Lunch will be provided for the 400+ students and chaperones who will be with us throughout the day. A pizza party and dance will be held while the judges make their final decision. The awards ceremony will be held around 8:30 pm. We will need many students and adults to volunteer for a variety of jobs on that day. Watch the PC Blast for more information later in the fall.

The Filmmaker's Mystery
by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
Joe Manning, a director of horror films, survives a terrible train wreck- only to be haunted by the ghost of Nathan West, one of the passengers who didn't survive. As the police investigate Joe, he investigates Nathan, desperate to understand why he survived and what Nathan's ghost could possibly want.
One of three companion Mystery Plays, the Filmmaker's Mystery wrestles with the most profound of human ideas – the mysteries of death, the afterlife, religion, faith and forgiveness – in a uniquely American way. The genre borrows liberally from early American horror writer, H.P Lovecraft and Alfred Hitchcock. The play is full of offbeat characters, "I see dead people creepiness" and a twist or two.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa premiered this play at the Yale School of Drama. It recieived the 2002 Roger L. Stevens Award from the Kennedy Center's Fund for New American Plays.
This play will be presented at the METG drama Festival on March 2, 12:15 pm at Duxbury High School. For more information about the Festival, click here.
