This coming Saturday, February 13, the Performing Arts Company is traveling to John Glenn High School in Bangor, MI for Regionals. If they place well, PAC will move on to the State Finals in Grand Rapids.
After performing The Gift well at the Theatre Arts Festival, high hopes are set for Regionals.
“I think we will do well because we’ve got a few awards. As well as last week being our best performance yet, so hopefully we keep the momentum,” said sophomore and PAC member Sidney Rotigel-Finegan.
The Gift has definitely connected to the audience members watching.
“We made some people cry,” said sophomore and PAC actor Keyshawn Wilson.
The seriousness of the acting as they struggle to cope with breast cancer in the family along with the reality that Linda, the wife and mother, was healthy and did everything right and still was plagued with the disease.
The story hits home for many people and Wilson thinks that will connect the audience to their play.
