I had the chance to see Trial of the Wicked Witch, the play which was put on by our hard-working theatre class. The play was held in our gym and was lead by the AMS Theatre teacher, Ms. Forsythe. It took place on December 15 & 16! Overall the play was a great success!
I loved how interactive the play was with its audience; there were actors running around the crowd and at the very end they asked the audience what the verdict should be for the Wicked Witch. We found her innocent! Also, I loved how the play was split up into two parts; the prosecution and the defense. Kylie, a 6th grader who played Little Red Riding Hood, said that she "thought it was very nerve racking, but an awesome way to overcome my fear of a crowd of people. Everyone was so supportive - thanks to every character of ONCE UPON A TIME!".
It was obvious that the actors had put a lot of hard work into the performance, and it showed. All of the characters were believable and the interaction with the audience made me feel like I was really there. The show was hilarious, and many moments had me laughing out loud. The costume design was fantastic and pretty realistic. This play was great and very funny. The actors were believable and seemed as though they enjoyed the play. In the end, if you had the chance to see this play consider yourself lucky. I'm already looking forward to the next theatre production in May!
