Dramatlsts bond together Pa, I I Iagcompletetheatrlcalseason -1--..1-..r..1---11.--....1..1 Basic techniques to master for the drama students' year included rehearsing lines, building sets, preparing costumes and perfecting the flavor of the productions. Ticket sales, phonetics and reading comprehension presented by R. L. Cook in Drama I. "I attempted to introduce the various aspects of the performing arts to the students," said Mr. Cook. Dramatic classroom performances gave actors and actresses the oppor- tunity to practice and perfect their skills. "Drama I does a lot of classroom plays and skits," said junior Steve Gallaher. "I had a good time." Drama II stressed the independent study of the sciences. "Students know their strong points already and can develop them," said Mr. Cook. Third year drama students each produced an entire puppet produc- tion. "The puppets were fun to make. It was something we'd never done before," said Senior Iana Norris. Student participation extends beyond the classroom. "Students must work a 14 hour minimum on each show, rehearse, read outside of class and also work during class," stressed Mr. Cook. The first crew call was to prepare sets for Ronald Alexander's ironic production of "Time Out for Ginger." "It was a good learning experience because we used a lot of first timers," said jana. "It was important to Mr. Cook because it was his tenth anniversary at Memorial," she added. Senior Mike McTaggart and junior Karin Murphy also starred in the play. "Out of all the plays I've done, it was probably the most successful," said Karin. "Everyone enjoyed it and we had a good turnout," she added. Work was interrupted in December for the Madrigal dinner. Parents, 'Time Out for Ginger' was presented November 21-22. Senior jana Norris played Ginger's mother and Freshman Shannon Vin- cent and junior Molly McBride played her sisters.

"It was a blast," she added. Auditions extended beyond theatrical roles. Outstanding drama students were invited to join the drama honor club Thespians, only after auditions. Students were invited to join because of contributions they made to Memorial, including competitions. Members also must have participated in two different areas of a production such as acting and lighting. '4We go to theatrical productions together," said jana. "We're trying to get letter jackets now like band and choir," she added. bU by Alicia Cooke and Charlotte Whitty Lectures are often used as a teaching tool. Drama Instructor Mr. R. L.
