After finishing the Studio One Acts last week, the theatre department is preparing for next month’s events such as the MIC Theatre Fest and Red Ribbon Week skits.

The MIC Theatre Fest at Warren Central High School will run from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Oct. 25. The CHS performance, “The Importance of Being Electra,” will face various schools in the tech and acting categories.

Theatre arts teacher Britta Schlicht said, “This is actually the first year they’re having this sort of contest through a company, so we’re kind of learning as we go but it should be a very fun experience for all the actors. Hopefully they’ll make the most of it.”

The Drama III classes are also performing at nearby elementary schools before Red Ribbon Week on Oct. 21. These skits are meant to raise awareness to younger children about the dangers of drugs, peer pressure and bullying.

When asked about the theatre arts classes, freshman and theatre student Caroline Gries said, “(Theatre arts) is the type of class where you can do something stupid, do something funny (or) do something dramatic and no one will judge you. It teaches (students) to reach beyond their comfort zone and it gives you confidence and a type of second family.”
