Gibson holds first drama club ‘Eat and Greet’

Thursday, Sept. 25, the drama club held an “Eat and Greet” in the drama room, with the purpose of introducing new people to the drama scene, especially freshmen interested in joining the drama club. The cast from the one act,  “Good Kids,” were there to introduce and show people what it is like to be in the show. 

According to freshman Nina Alabanza, the drama club is a place for everyone to be themselves and become better actors.

“[It’s] a great community where everyone supports everyone and it’s a free space to experiment with yourself and your character,” Alabanza said.

The event itself had free pizza for everyone. They played some oldies songs that they danced and sang along to. One act director Ken Gibson showed the official cover for the one act. While eating pizza, they played a game of musical theatre Kahoot, with questions about Broadway shows such as “Mamma Mia”, “Wicked”, and “The Phantom of the Opera”. To finish off the party, Gibson held a raffle with gift cards of varying amounts to Target.

Gibson is in the early stages of planning the one act and the “Eat and Greet” was a way for newcomers to get involved.

“[It] is for people coming into our space,” Gibson said. “[The one act cast] has a lot of enthusiasm and it’s coming along great, it’s just so early as far as the planning stages and moving characters around.” 

The “Eat and Greet” was a way to introduce people to the drama scene and get them excited about auditioning for plays, musicals, and one acts in the future.
