Upper School Acting Class Presents "STRANDED: Views from Quarantine"

Indian Creek’s Upper School acting class proved that “the show must go on,” even during times of pandemic! Over the past weeks of Virtual School, the class has been working on monologues from a new play, “STRANDED: Views from Quarantine,” by Stage Partners Playwrights. “STRANDED” features a series of monologues presented from the point of view of a variety of passengers being kept in solitary cabins of a cruise ship that has been quarantined. The young artists organization put this fun show together in response to the rapidly changing school theater environment during the pandemic when student actors could not all be together in person. The class gathered together for their final synchronous session on Friday, May 22, to enjoy a screening of their collective project.
