Summit High School’s most recent play, The Caucasian Chalk Circle, debuted on Thursday November 16, 2017. The school’s unique take on the play was a huge hit for both the students and the teachers. According to Sarah Day, the stage manager, the play sold out on Saturday night.

The Caucasian Chalk Circle was originally written in 1948 by Bertolt Brecht. The play is set in the Soviet Republic of Georgia and follows the life of an abandoned baby in five acts.  Josh Blanchard, the director at Summit High, took his own approach by making the play more modern. Nash LaFrankie, a senior at SHS and an experienced actor, rapped in the play. Blanchard added comedic sections, which made it more likable for the high school audience.

According to Caroline Hessford, the choir teacher at SHS, “The audience was really into it. They laughed at the funny parts, which is good for a small audience.” After being asked about the audience, Hessford said, “It was nice that we had a good showing in teachers to support their cast’s students.” Both students and teachers enjoyed the play and responded extremely well. Sarah Day recalled, “I thought it was a very different show, and whether everyone liked it or not, the cast and crew worked really hard.”
