Although this year looks a little different, there is one thing we can all agree upon – The Show Must Go On, or at least according to the Rockland High School Theatre Department.
This fall, Joanne White and Julia DiCanzio, directors of the RHS Drama team came up with an idea to put together a production with the Drama Club students. Ms. White explained, “We needed to figure out a safe, manageable way to put together a production that still allowed students to be creative. We wanted to make it as supportive as possible for them with everything going on.”
Students had the option to choose or write their very own monologue. It took about three weeks to put together with virtual rehearsals, virtual meetings and recordings. Christopher Burnieika of WRPS helped record it.
The final product is called “A Medley of Monologues.” (Video link here)
