Spring Play 2014 Pix

Even the puppets are tired...

Even the puppets are tired…

<Sigh> The party’s over. Our spring play comprised of four student-directed shows closed last week. Advanced thespians directed: “MmmBeth”by Allison Wilson, “Dorothy and Alice” by Itamar Moses, “Action News: Now with 10% More Action” by Jonathan Rand, and “Post-Its: Notes on a Marriage,” by by Winnie Holzman and Paul Dooley.

Boy are we tired, yet satisfied. We had a ton of folks onstage for the first time ever–and they did great! Thanks to all the parents who brought us food and family and friends who supported us by sitting in the house!

Check out the pix on our Flickr page. Thanks to Cathy our fantastic photographer!

Tell us!

Which picture catches your fancy? Describe it or provide a link and two reasons why you liked it. Saying it’s artsy and cool makes Cathy happy, but it doesn’t answer the question…

  1. https://www.flickr.com/photos/nshstheatre/13930389963/in/set-72157644220144933 I really liked this picture because it was my favorite skit on the play and shows how they were preparing for it.

  2. The picture that appeals the most to me, is the one with mariella and her cut, because to me it shows two things, it shows dedication to herself, and commitment to provide the audience some amazing acting.

  3. https://m.flickr.com/photos/nshstheatre/13947566201/in/set-72157644220144933/ was my favorite picture. It was my favorite play and the actors were great. I love the idea of the two meeting. The characters were well executed by our Nshs students. Looking at the picture reminds me how great it was!

  4. https://m.flickr.com/photos/nshstheatre/13970467313/in/set-72157644220144933/
    I liked this picture because I think it shows how much fun work in the theater is and how well the actors get along.

  5. I like this photo the most because it made the prop look like it was actually hanging off of the curtain instead of by a person. I also liked the prop’s metallic glow in the photo.

  6. This picture caught my attention because it shows that not only actors have to get into costumes and makeup ,but also the lights and sound have to be set up for performances.

  7. One of the pictures of Alexis is funny because it reminds me of the line where he says “I am just happy to see you.” I couldn’t stop laughing when he said that. It was one of my favorite parts of the play.

  8. The picture with Alexis with his head down caught my eye because in the backround it shows Cami really getting into character and Alexis is still able to maintain concentration because I wouldn’t be able to do that, I would start laughing if that were me.

  9. I like this picture because it shows that even the people backstage have fun and it also shows how well they work with the actors.

  10. My favorite photo was the one the one of Mariella and her cut because that just goes to show that you may be injured but that will not stop you from doing what you love.

  11. https://m.flickr.com/#/photos/nshstheatre/13907217882/in/set-72157644220144933/
    My favorite picture is of Alexis. And in the picture you can see him really focused to remember his lines and not want to mess up.

  12. this photo catches my eye because it looks as if the actors and actresses are really enjoying themselves and it is really nice how there was a lot of people involved with the spring production. And it looks like they all came together for a closing number.

  13. I really liked the pictures taken of Rodrigo and Priscilla because in all the pictures they looked eager to start and they looked like they were actually enjoying themselves and having fun.

  14. https://www.flickr.com/photos/nshstheatre/13970892143/in/photostream/ The picture that captured my eyes was the one where the cast was getting ready. It shows how fun theatre can be even before the play starts. Everyone on stage looked great so it must be from all that time spent in the dressing rooms.

  15. Some of the pictures that I feel are fascinating to look through are the backstage shots. The Audience never gets to see whats happening back stage or what the actors are up to during performances, so these shots give them a quick sneak peek.

  16. https://m.flickr.com/#/photos/nshstheatre/13970659153/in/set-72157644220144933/
    I really like this photo because all of the actors are I’m character. Sean’s hair was hilarious during the play and that is all that you can see of him in the picture.

  17. I liked this picture https://m.flickr.com/#/photos/nshstheatre/13947418851/in/set-72157644220144933/ because they both look serious. I wouldn’t be able to keep a straight face when someone is holding my leg. This shows how serious they are about the the spring play and how focused they were.

  18. The picture that catches my eye would have to be where Mariella is getting her cut patched up. It shows that even when your hurt you can be positive and carry on the show

    • My favorite pictures are the ones that include pj because he is a very funny guy. In the play he performed exquisitely and I loved the play as a whole because of that.

  19. My favorite pictures are the ones with PJ because during the play all I did was laugh when he would say something. He did really good playing his part.

  20. My favorite picture is the one of Rodrigo and Priscilla at there new desk. In this picture Priscilla is smiling and Rodrigo is making a weird face. The reason why I liked this photo is because you can tell that both are selling their parts and that they are having fun at the same time.

  21. https://m.flickr.com/#/photos/nshstheatre/13970474683/in/set-72157644220144933/
    I really liked the picture of Jasmine looking focused and writing something down on a clipboard. I think it’s great how Cathy took pictures of not only the actors, but also the production staff. Another reason I liked this picture is because she took an “action shot.”

  22. The play was a success. Every one did a great job and I enjoyed it a lot!

  23. My favorite image was that of Illiana dead on the floor and Alexis looking down on her! All images were amazing. I was incredibly lucky to be part of such an amazing production! not only did I fall in love with acting, but I made a lot of friends that I never imagine I would have ever talked to before the play! This was one of the best experiences in my life and I truly wish I can do it again.

  24. I liked the cell phone jail! I thought it was cool and funny. It keeps the students focused on what they need to be focused on. Cell jail rules! ! 🙂

  25. My favorite pictures are all the ones pj is in because i loved him in all the plays he was in and he made me literally LOL.

  26. The one picture that catched my fancy was the one that showed the cast getting ready and putting on their makeup before the show started.I liked it because it showed the backstage part of the play and also the process they go through every show.

  27. Holy whack-a-mole, I’m not sure this link will work, but here’s a link to the picture I liked best: https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7023/13952214902_722d42b0f1_h.jpg

    It’s the poster Emily Garcia designed for the plays, and let me tell ya, it is fabulous! I think it really helped get the word out, and gathered a large audience. Who knew this Lonely Fan of Johnny Cash had so much talent? :’)

  28. https://www.flickr.com/photos/nshstheatre/13947418851/in/set-72157644220144933 My favorite picture is where PJ is holding onto Illiana’s leg. Just remembering the play makes me want to laugh because they had the most comical roles.They both did an amazing job because although they had to recite funny lines, they were able to maintain a straight face throughout the entire play. I like that they were very into their character and I am mostly impressed of their ability to memorize many lines.

  29. The photograph of the puppet caught my attention. It was a very spontaneous thing to do and also very funny.

  30. I can’t pick just one favorite. I like them all. The witches were really funny, the murderers looked depressed and PJ looked tired lying on the floor. Everyone looked like they were having lots of fun.

  31. https://m.flickr.com/#/photos/nshstheatre/13970547873/in/set-72157644220144933/
    This picture is probably one of my favorites. Kylie is looking off into nothing and you just see Jason taking a selfie in the background.

  32. https://www.flickr.com/photos/nshstheatre/13930389963/in/set-72157644220144933 This picture captures my attention the most. One reason being both Rodrigo and Pricilla both look so eager to start their performance! Another reason it captures my attention would be that the way the table is set up, they totally look like reporters.

  33. My favorite photo is of Adrian, Kiana, and King. The “Buy Pants” ad in “Action News” was my favorite of all ads and this picture really captures the fun that these Thespians were having. In addition, Kiana looks very intrigued by the pants, it’s very believable. https://m.flickr.com/#/photos/nshstheatre/13947634562/in/set-72157644220144933/

  34. I really enjoyed the picture with the puppet on the bench because it caught my attention. I like it because at first I thought it was a real person when I took a quick look but it wasn’t. It was funny and it showed me that the year is almost over and everyone in the played had fun and tiring.

  35. The photograph of the puppet laying down on the bench really caught my attention. It is really funny and entertaining to look at, and it also shows that not only the actors get tired after a show, but so do the props.
