- In the past few weeks the drama program has competed in the region and state drama competitions. Regionals were held in Manti on March 22nd-23rd. On the first day of regionals there were the musical scenes and the one acts performed. On the second day, there was everything from contemporary scenes to pantomime scenes performed. All of the scenes that we performed were moved onto state except for three.
- State was held from April 5th-6th. We arrived in Richfield and watched some of our fellow competitors perform their one acts. Then we retired to our hotel to prepare for the long day ahead. San Juan High preformed contemporary scenes, classical scenes, dramatic monologues, and musical performances. There were a few scenes that got straight superiors such as, Emma Ward and Jordan Clinger, who performed a musical scene, Rachel Berrett and Ashlyn Bake, who performed a classical scene and, Skyler Jensen, who also performed a musical scene. Congratulations to all of the people who participated and did well in the competitions.
The drama classes did there spring play in February this year's was the Curious savage it was a comedy about and elderly woman who inherited her deceased husband's estate. She wanted to spend the millions of dollars on foolish things that made people happy. Her stepchildren thought she was crazy for spending the money on other people, so they sent her to an insane asylum. Soon after they sent her there, they realized that she had taken all of the money out of the bank and hid it. They desperately try to find it while she leads them on wild goose chases and becomes friends with the patients in the insane asylum. It was a comedy and heartfelt as well. In the end, with the help from the other patients, she was able to trick her stepchildren into thinking all of the money had been burned.
