Theatre Seminar and Production Class to Present Original Play on Grief:  

MY GRIEF IS MY OWN

  • Tuesday, May 26 at 8 PM
  • ANHS LGI
  • Free and open to the public

On Tuesday, May 26th, the Appleton North High School Theatre Seminar/Production class will present an original theatrical piece entitled “My Grief Is My Own” at 8:00 P.M. in the Large Group Instruction Room at North High School.   The 40 minute play deals with the very topical and pervasive subject of grieving and loss, presenting a positive, proactive message of hope while offering strategies for dealing with the various forms of grief we encounter in our lives.  The play utilizes a combination of performed poetry and original monologues--many based on real-life situations which have occurred at North High School and in the community.  

Appleton North theatre Director Ron Parker states, “Grief and loss are experienced by everyone.  Whether we are grieving the death of a loved one, the loss of a job or a pet, the end of a relationship, or even a way of life we once knew, it is important to realize that grief happens to all of us and that it needs to be expressed.  Through this original theatrical work, the students hope to share this important message with everyone who needs to hear.”

Each year the North Theatre Seminar/Production class prepares a production dealing with some social issue topic relevant to the community and its youth.  Previous classes have dealt with the issues of tolerance, abuse, depression, suicide, homelessness, mental illness, and drunk driving. The play will be performed for North students during the school day on May 27th. 

Admission to the public performance is free, but seating is restricted to 100 people.  Both the school and public performances will be followed by a talk back on the issues of grieving and loss raised by the play.  For further information, contact Ron Parker, director at 832-4300 or via e-mail parkerronaldc@aasd.k12.wi.us .
