This was the first play for the 2022-2023 school year and the whole cast was excited to do a play like this one.

Lia Bridges, who played Abigail Williams, said,   “So, this is actually my first lead in a high school play, and so… the pressure was on, I was a little stressed, I was like ‘lets not let down the people that are surrounding me.” “It was really stressful, but it was also really easy because I know everyone that was with me, and even if I didn’t know them, we got super close and genuinely built a family.”

Logan McGowan, who played John Proctor, said it was a hard character to play, but he is not sure if he was able to master the character.

“It’s a really hard character to play but I loved the challenge. “It’s a nice challenge and it was really fun cause this was my second or third time ever being a lead actor, this one was my first time I ever got as many lines as I did, but it was super fun,” said McGowan.

The next play/musical the theater department is preparing for is the musical Grease. Theater will collaborate with other departments including choir and orchestra to perform the musical in January.
