Students will work on Yearbook, a one act play, and numerous other scenes/monolgues. The goal of this class is to involve high school students in a theatre program between projects at their schools.
Written to counteract the constant barrage of negative stories about youth saturating the media today, Yearbook is a positive play about the humor, determination and caring that exists in every school. Susan and Beth enlist the help of Jack and Eric to move the boxes of hot-off-the-press yearbooks that just arrived. Between loads, they stop to flip through the yearbook pages, reminiscing through flashback scenes about the year’s highlights. They share the story of Debbie, who thinks she was only asked to the dance because she touched her ”Lucky Locker.” Susan tells how Cathy, the new student at school, conquered her fear of walking down ”Jock Block,” despite the hilarious nightmare she had about it. Tim agonizes over taking the winning shot as the state ”Basketball Champ.” Sadly, they also realize their vulnerability as they see the memorial page for Leslie, who tragically died in a car accident at the beginning of the school year. Each vignette comes to life with the help of an ensemble of students that remains on stage through the entire play. While many plays allow you to ”customize” them by deleting scenes, this play also offers you the remarkable opportunity to create and add your own pieces, uniquely personalizing Yearbook for your own school. Whether you use Yearbookas a ”healing play” or just for the fun of it, both your cast and your audience will thrive on its positive messages about teens and will feel renewed hope for the future.
