Fall experimental: Little Women

The experimental play is student-directed by senior Lily Hurlock; she has selected an act from “Little Women” to perform. The fall experimental play takes place on Nov. 2, 3 and 4 at 7pm in the black box theater.

Hurlock has always admired the story of “Little Women”, it’s a story she connects to, having three sisters of her own. She thought others would be able to feel the same connection, inspiring her decision to select “Little Women” for the fall experimental.

“I think that there’s a lot of character depth in this show. I think it’s very different from stuff we have done in the past. ‘Little Women’ is a lot more dramatic and focuses on sisterly relationships, something that is cool to explore because as high schoolers we can relate to that type of relationship,” Hurlock said.

“The experimental play is different from other school performances because it is completely student selected, directed and student performed,” Senior Forrest Holsteen, who plays Laurie, said.

The fact that we are putting on such a great show despite not having the same experience or resources as a teacher is really rewarding and it feels good for all of us to be stepping up.

“A student-directed play is a really fun experience,” Holsteen said. “It’s really a point for all of us to come together and work together.”

As the play approaches the cast and director are completing the final steps in order to have a successful show.

“The show is going really well. We have blocked the entire show and now we are working on character development,” Hurlock said.
