Elm Tree Press: Theatre at LA

Questions:

  • Who is this strange man (a.k.a. Joel Sugerman)?
  • Why is he running across campus with those weird glasses; spectacles that rest perfectly on his nose?

Answers:

Well, Mr. Sugerman may be eccentric (to say the least). But he is at the helm of Lawrence Academy’s spectacular Theatre Department where the opportunities offered to you are incredible, and you must get involved.

However, it all starts by walking into the Theatre Classroom where all the magic is made…

Besides being a homage to the great Charlie Chaplin (and also decorated with posters that make you think deeply), this is where we — the students — create.

In the fall, the play comes together; in the winter, the musical. In the spring, well, that’s when “One Acts” are in full swing.

To give you some insight on my experience, freshman year I had the time of my life playing “Audrey II” in Little Shop of Horrors; a very opinionated disciple in Godspell the next year; the “Squeegee Man” in Rent, and two hilarious roles in two years of “One Acts.”

In short, my experience at LA would have been very different if I didn’t involve myself in the Theater Department!

But it’s entirely up to you to take that first step.

So, even if you have never been in a play or performed a scene publically in your life —

NOW IS THE TIME! IT IS SO MUCH FUN AND WORTH EVERY SECOND!
