High School Drama Students Get Lesson in Theatre Make-Up

Many thanks to master make-up artist, Ben Miller, for visiting the high school drama students on Tuesday afternoon. The cast of the production, "Comedy, Past & Present" rehearsed their show during the teacher work day, ending with an hour-long make-up workshop. They learned how shadows and highlights are the secrets to transforming a person into a character.

Ben Miller transforms Ian Cowden '15, into Argan, the Imaginary Invalid.

This year's high school production is split into two parts: MoliƩre's French comedy, "The Imaginary Invalid," followed by live Improv Comedy. The show opens Friday, March 20th and runs one weekend only. Show times are:
  • Friday, March 20 - 7pm
  • Saturday, March 21 - 7pm
  • Sunday, March 22 - 4pm
Improv students ham it up in class.

Tickets are $5 and are available at the door, at the front Office, or from cast members.

High School students can be admitted free of charge with their Student Activities Card.
