A pretty sweet adventure: Middle school UIL play Two Donuts

in ARS News/Entertainment/Fine Arts/Theatre Arts by

This wonderful middle school play is about a little boy named Pepito. His grandmother had recently died, but came to him during a dream. She gave him two Guatemalan worry dolls named Modesto and Ridiculo. Who granted him three wishes. Pepito’s first wish was to go to Guatemala. Instead he got sent to Cuate-Mala. While there he went on an epic adventure to save the citizens and the magical flower.

When I asked one of the crew members what she thought about the experience she said“ I really liked working in crew… I think we all worked well together,” Anya Bird (7). This I noticed helps show how the theater community is close and like a family by the end of a production. You could tell too. They all worked seamlessly together even when not working on the production.

I also asked a cast member what they thought about being in the play. She responded with “I really enjoyed working on the play and I think everyone did a great job,” Ava Angelini (8). I could feel everyone’s spirit and love for acting and being part of the play by the end of the production. Especially when they all took a bow.

Over all the play was very entertaining, and you could tell that the students worked very hard, and had fun doing it. The next Theater production is in the spring, and is the high school UIL play called As It Is In Heaven.

Lily will spare no details when it comes to her knitting, and she is just as meticulous with her writing and editing. When she's not working out the logistics and minute kinks of the Polaris Press, this water baby is swimming freestyle for the ARS Varsity Swim team or exercising her flair for the dramatics in ARS’ annual one-act play. Her essential items include Cold-Brew Coffee, classic oldies music, and of course, a pen and paper. She is excited to be a part of the Journalism community for the second year in a row, and as of this fall a member of the editing team.
