Lejla Suskic (12) and Nora Ovchiyan (12) prepare for the spring play, being preformed in the OHS Drama Department March 4-6

The set is painted, lines memorized, and the lights are up. Spring plays “Who Calls?” and “A Game” will be performed at the Oakville Drama Center this week.  

The plays open Wednesday, March 4 at 7 pm in the OHS black box theater, and will be performed at the same time and location on March 5 and 6. 

“I have never seen a school play at OHS, but I would like to see it,” said Emily Hufker (10) a student at OHS, “I was in my school play in middle school and ever since I have really liked being in them and watching them. It is really fun to see the talent your classmates have.” 

The two spring plays will tell two very different stories and will entertain the audience as well as make them think about their life and decisions. 

“Who Calls?” tells a story of servants in the Victorian era dealing with the tragic death of their mistress. In this drama the audience will watch as alliances form and suspicions grow all leading to an ending the audience won’t see coming.  

In “A Game” the audience will be shown an experiment. Three people are placed in a room and given equal space. Does the power of the words, “this is my land. It is beautiful, and it is mine” turn them against each other? Will this experiment be a success? 

“This has been fascinating,” said Bonnie Niedermann (10) who is a part of set and paint as well as run crew. “I’ve never taken a tech ed class. Learning how to build a set and being technical helps take my mind off of my busy schedule.” 

Tickets are $5 and can be purchased from Ms. Amy Learn or Ms. Melissa Harper, drama teachers at OHS, in the drama center. Tickets will also be available at the door on a first come first serve basis. 

“I think this play is really cool with how it came together. Both have all female casts.” said Mia Adams (9) who plays Baker in “A Game”, “ It is really interesting how we can turn something so simple into something with a lasting effect. I can not wait for people to see it.”
