On December 5th, 6th, and 7th, the RHS Theater Department put on “Marcus is Walking.” The show featured various scenes all based around a car; for instance, running over a chipmunk, a car accident and a night trick or treating.

When asked about the show , director Julia DiCanzio stated, “I love directing the fall play and seeing each student take risks, grow in confidence, and become part of the wonderful community that was formed around the play…The performances showed the commitment and effort that each student, cast and crew, put into the play.”

When asked how they thought the show went, actors Katy Buckley and Jordan Cunningham stated that they thought it went really well! Buckley states, “It was so awesome to hear such great reviews!” Cunningham also adds, “I loved the amount of students who attended to support the theatre department!”
