Act Up! Theatrical Activism from the Bard to Broadway is a musical revue featuring monologues and small scenes from Shakespeare’s greatest works, as well as musical solos and duets from time-honored Broadway shows, woven together to examine the historical and current role of theater as a voice for social justice. The production was written and directed by Natalie Cunha, with music direction by Anna Wentlent, choreography by Katie Donovan, film direction by Anna Cuevas, and costumes by Erline Trites.
Despite the challenges of attending school in a pandemic, the RMHS Drama Club was proud to have workied on their annual fall production, albeit in a slightly different manner than usual. The cast and crew of nearly 60 high school students rehearsed, recorded music, designed costumes, and created tech plans entirely from home over Zoom, and filmed their performances outdoors and at home. The production was released as a film for online viewing.
