Acting

“The Yellow Boat” by David Saar was be put on by the Eagle High Fourth Wall Players theatre department from Feb. 21-24. The play followed a little boy receiving a blood transfusion during the HIV/AIDS crisis in America. This play strayed from the comedic farces and humor of the past plays, but was a very heartfelt play that tugged on audience members heart-strings. Senior Bradley Fischer was Benjamin, the 8-year-old boy with a bright imagination. Senior Jack Windsor played his writer father, while junior Marin Weaver was the boy’s caring Mother. Sophomore Ally Godfrey was the child-care specialist helping Benjamin through his journey. Junior Lauren Avery played the little boy’s best friend, Eddy and junior Cole McAdams, sophomore Taylor Milliot and freshman Katiana Lovitt were the chorus members who play many background roles throughout the play.

The Advanced Acting Class is currently in their “Uta Hagen Unit,” learning from the famous actress’ book “Respect For Acting.” They will soon pick their ensemble pieces from a One Act play for their “Senior Showcase” coming up in May.
