Advanced theater arts students at Granbury High School performed selected scenes from notable plays during Dessert Bar Theatre on January 5, 2012.
Performed in black box theatre-style at the GHS Bagby-McMahan Performing Arts Center, the free presentation was academic in nature and fulfilled a class requirement, according to theater arts teacher Phil Groeschel.
The group accepted donations for desserts served during a short intermission. Funds will support the high school’s chapter of the International Thespian Society.
Selected scenes were from A Streetcar Named Desire and The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams, Proof by David Auburn, Blithe Spirit by Noel Coward, A Zoo Story by Edward Albee, and Noises Off by Michael Frayn.
The players were Mark Aguilar, Kyle Clifton, Xan Cramer, Danya Gonnella, Brooke Goodson, Victoria King, Angelina Lewis, Miranda Mhoon, Elizabeth Parris, Zach Payne, Kelsey Timmins, Chase Whittet, Natalie Willingham, Morgan Willis, and Izzy Woods.
Technical assistants for the production were light board operator P.J. Mullen and sound board operator Kayla Godfrey. Stage crew members were Jamie George and Bailey Youngs.
The theater students will begin preparing for several productions in the spring: the choir musical Brigadoon in early February; Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner for UIL one-act play competition in late March; and the play The Crucible in early May. The GHS troupe will also be hosting an improvisational workshop for eighth and ninth graders in mid-April.
