Hoosic Valley’s Drama Club has a Playwright Extraordinaire!

October 14, 2016 - Capital Repertory Theatre’s NEXT ACT! New Play Summit 5 has picked as one of its winners to be one of HV’s own…11th grader Emily O’Brien! The guidelines for submission were precise, the play could only be one act, 15 minutes in length and must showcase 7 characters, of which Emily did in Tony Award winning style.

The setting Emily penned ‘The End of a Chapter’ was the last 8 hours of school, senior year. The characters were fictitious but the inspiration was real. Year-end emotions, life changes, goodbyes, friendships, the roller coaster of being a young adult closing one chapter and opening another. Moments captured in words by a budding young playwright and acclaimed by one of our area’s premier live theaters.

Capital Rep’s NEXT ACT! New Play Summit 5 will be held throughout the weekend from Friday, October 21 to Monday, October 24th. Emily’s play will be professionally read on the Capital Rep Stage, Saturday, October 22nd at 2pm. Get her autograph now because when she reaches her aspiration of writing a Broadway musical, you’ll have to wait in line!

October 14, 2016 - The English 12 Mythology and AP classes took a field trip to Capital Repertory Theatre in Albany, New York.  The seniors watched a performance of the Irish play, Outside Mullingar written by John Patrick Shanley.  After the performance, the students had the opportunity to participate in a question and answer discussion involving the actors and set designer.
