Utopia: Where there are no sad faces because everything is perfect.

Are you tired of your life? Do you hate just how miserable everyone has become? Want a family that loves and appreciates you for you? Well, look no further, as we have created a community where there are no sad faces. Everyone has a purpose, and everyone is loved.

Sounds too good to be true. Don’t just take our word for it. Hear from our residences, and who knows, maybe you’ll uproot everything and live here in our hidden paradise…

Utopia, where the grass is definitely greener.

This year, I wanted to do a play with the group that challenged them and was different from any play they had done before. At the end of last term, I gave them a synopsis of a few plays, and this was the one the majority leaned towards.

This has been the most fun I’ve had with this group developing the play. They have all embraced the comedic aspect of the show, and their enthusiasm hasn’t dwindled. The main challenge during this process has been that they are all teenagers who enjoy their dark, moody TV shows, so making them smile and be happy throughout the entire play has been interesting, as even when there is conflict in this play, they are having to do it with a smile on their faces, which might not be their natural go-to emotion.

I really hope they have enjoyed the challenge and that you enjoy watching their work come to life

Enjoy the show!
