We are pleased to share that both our Middle and Upper School fall plays are now available for viewing on our Holton-Landon Drama YouTube channel!
MIDDLE SCHOOL PLAY: "Do You Read Me?"
Written especially for actors to perform on Zoom, “Do You Read Me?” is a space comedy about community. In Kathryn Funkhauser’s ingenious play, NASA Scientists work to support a crew of civilian colonists on Mars. Their mission? To grow the first eggplant. As the scientists take reports from the self-appointed experts, disappointed sci-fi fans, and customer service nightmares that inhabit the colony under the leadership of the arrogant Commander, the mission starts to seem impossible. But could there be more to the story than they're letting on?
UPPER SCHOOL HOLTON-LANDON FALL PLAY: "A Midsummer Night's Dream"
Students from Holton and Landon proudly present William Shakespeare’s beloved “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” in a unique format. Rehearsed and recorded entirely over Zoom, this filmed version of one of Shakespeare’s best loved plays is sure to delight audiences with its courtly lovers, rude mechanicals and mischievous fairies. Lovestruck Athenians take to the forest where they meet up with the feuding Queen and King of the fairy kingdom. Meanwhile, a group of wanna-be actors have also made their way into the woods to secretly rehearse a play. After a night of misadventures, love spells, and magic the mortals emerge from the woods unscathed but forever transformed.
