PHS Winter Drama: Trap

Trap, January 30 & 31, 2020, 7:30 PM, PHS Black Box Theatre

 

 

Spectacle Theatre proudly presents the Drama II and Drama Seminar classes in The Winter Drama on January 30 and 31. 

Set in Menachap, California, Trap is a documentary-style theatre production about an incomprehensible event:  every person in the audience of a high school play falls unconscious--every person but one.  Using interviews with witnesses, loved ones, first responders, and the investigators pursuing the case, a theatre ensemble brings the story of the strange event to life, documentary-style.  Unnerving, exhilarating and wildly inventive, you’ve never walked into anything quite like Trap

The Winter Drama is being performing in the PHS Black Box Theatre on January 30 and 31 at 7:30 PM.  Tickets are $5.00 and can be purchased at the door or online at https://princetondrama.ludus.com/.   Doors will open at 7:10 PM.  All seats are General Admission. 

 

About the PHS Drama Program

Whether a student dreams of starring in a show, leading the technical team, or helping manage a theatrical production, the PHS Drama department has a long legacy of introducing students to theatre in a way that builds confidence on and off stage. From Drama I classes to the Advanced Acting and Performance Seminar, students explore all aspects of theatre through hands-on experiences. 

PHS students perform Love's Labour Lost

Drama classes are offered during the day so that students are able to participate in theatre productions while also being a member of an athletic team or other after-school organization. Courses offer students a creative outlet while also introducing them to the principles and techniques of playwriting, including plot structure, dramatic action, point of view, mood, character development, setting, written dialogue, and stage directions. In addition to acting courses, PHS also offers a course on Musical Theatre that explores song and dance and provides students with practical steps to pursuing a career. 

Our theatre facilities include the 700+ seat Trego-Biancosino Auditorium and a black box theatre. A full student orchestra accompanies the annual spring musical.
