On Tuesday the Rosetown Central High School drama club held their parents performance night.
The students have been practicing over the past few months in preparation for the Saskatchewan Drama Association Regional happening this weekend in Southy. Tuesday night students got to put all their hard work to the test and if you where in attendance, they defiantly didn't disappoint.
The play, The Bottom Of The Lake written by Steven Stack is a mystery thriller about three young girls, Vanessa (Skylar Morrison), Lindsey (Amanda McPhee), and Claire (Payton Anderson) who sneak out of camp in the middle of the night to tell ghost stories.Only to stumble a stranger, Dani (Dante Nolin-Settee) all alone in the woods.
The girls take turns telling their most terrifying stories in hopes to scare one another. Only problem with that was Claire didn't seem to have the typical reaction when someone tells a scary story, which left the audience roaring with laughter.
With each new story told, a new group of cast members took to the stage, including some scary characters we are all familiar with, The Lady in White (Erica Menke), Bloody Mary (Civahanna Harrison), and Hook Hand (Damien Burton) to name a few.
The three friends then decide it's time to tell the ultimate scary story, only this time it wasn't a ghost story. Vanessa, Lindsey, and Claire tell a tale of a young girl befriended by three sister or so the young girl thought. As Dani seems to become more and more frightened, Claire breaks character reassuring Dani it was only a joke. However, the girls have made a vital mistake because the story they where telling was infect real and Dani wasn't just any lonely stranger in the woods.
The RCSH performance was suspenseful and yet filled with humor bringing audience members to their feet in applause. The cast and crew will now focus hard during their last few practices before leaving this Friday for the Region 6 Drama Festival in Southy.
