Congratulations to our amazing, creative, and talented students for a successful showing at the Drama Festival!

This winter, the Sizer Theater Arts club (SiTA) has been working on a performance called Circle Mirror Transformation by Annie Baker. This past week the actors took their production and competed in the the Massachusetts High School Drama Festival. Students and adults all walked away very impressed with the production.The students, directed by Mr. Noah Dawson, worked incredibly hard on the show and were excited to share their work with an audience from across the state.

After performing in the preliminary round and winning a total of 6 awards for stage manager, lighting design and execution, three acting awards, and a student recognition award for most thought provoking line, Sizer Theater Arts proudly moved onto the semi-final round with their show.

The Massachusetts Educational Theater Guild, Inc. exists for the charitable and educational purpose of promoting and strengthening excellence, access, and education in the theatrical arts for middle and secondary school students and teachers. For more than 80 years, the METG has been a leader in arts education, believing that theater has a unique power to enrich and transform young people’s lives.

In Circle Mirror Transformation, an unlikely collection of strangers sign up for Marty's creative drama class: a recently divorced carpenter, a high school junior, a former actress, and Marty's husband. Throughout, the group plays Marty's imaginative (and sometimes awkward) theatre games. But as their relationships develop over the course of the summer, the seemingly silly games generate some real-life drama.

SiTA will continue to the semi-final round of the Festival on Saturday, March 19th. Learn more at the Massachusetts Theatre Guild website
