Dark of the Moon

The Weston High Theater Company, and its new drama director Anne Slotnick, begin the 2018-2019 season with Dark of the Moon, a dark folktale from the Appalachian region, by authors Howard Richardson and William Berney. The play takes place in a rural town in the Appalachian valley in 1930. It is the story of the beautiful Barbara Allen and the witch-boy, John, with whom she falls in love. The Witch culture and the Townsfolk culture are forever at odds, with a long history of deep seeded resentment and prejudice. The love between Barbara and John exasperates this, and though their love story thrives for a time, it ultimately ends in tragedy.

Please join the Weston High Theater Company for this powerful performance on Thursday November 15th, Friday November 16th, and Saturday November 17th all at 7pm in the Weston High School Auditorium.

Theater Company Highlights 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 (so far)

Last November, Theater Company presented Shakespeare’s As You Like It in front of three large and enthusiastic audiences. Our work together included “on location” rehearsals in the woods as well as our usual process.

In January of 2017, Theater Company presented the one-act play That Thing You Do With Your Tongue by local playwright Robert Murphy at the Emerson College Theater Festival. All three actors in the production won acting awards and the student director received and award for excellence in directing.

In March of 2017, Theater Company wrote and performed the original play The Undiscovered Country. We also hosted the Massachusetts Theater Celebration of seven schools and performed The Undiscovered Country at the celebration. Five of our student actors won awards for their performances, and our techies won awards for lighting and sound design.

Later in March, we performed The Undiscovered Country at the Mass Collaborative Festival. At that event, three actors received awards for their performances, and our techies won awards for costume design, lighting design, and sound design, and the entire writing/acting ensemble won a special judge’s award for the creation of the play. In addition, Weston won the coveted Stage Manager’s Award as the most positive, effective, and professional of the nine schools participating.

In May, Theater Company performed the epic Les Misérables in front of packed houses. More than 70 students worked on the production.

In June, Theater Company held its annual “Act V” event—an evening including and end-of-year dinner and performances—at the Weston Rec Center.

Also in June, many Theater Company members participated in the Ether Day June Academy course co-taught by Erica Cole and John Minigan, researching the first uses of ether as a surgical anesthetic, in preparation for the first production of the 2017-2018 year.

In October, Theater Company presented Ether Day, an original play commissioned by the Anesthesia History Society and devised by the cast, at the Ninth International Symposium on the History of Anesthesia in Boston. Theater Company also presented the play at Weston High.

Later in October, members of Theater Company traveled to Boston’s Opera House to see a production of the Broadway musical Fun Home and participate in an exclusive post-show conversation with the music director and members of the cast.

In November, Theater Company presented the Ten-Minute Play Festival, a collection of twelve short plays by seven award-winning Boston playwrights, directed by 11 students. The plays were presented in an intimate setting on the Weston High Stage, with most of the Boston playwrights in attendance.

As November ends, Theater Company is currently casting for this year’s winter play, to be devised by the acting ensemble, and preparing for this year’s participation in the Emerson College Festival and this year’s spring musical, Godspell.
