The LHS drama club will present The Importance of Being Earnest this fall. The show will take place Nov. 1-4 in the LHS auditorium at 7 p.m, with a matinee show at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 4.
Earnest is about two young men who pretend to be the same fictional person, according to Melissa Syverson, the LHS drama director.
“They both get caught up in their lie, so it’s about their way of… working around that,” Syverson said.
The cast has been working hard on memorization for this show, she said. When the actors are mentally preparing for the show, they start “turning into their characters,” said Syverson, and they start putting themselves in the characters’ shoes. As the cast starts preparing for the show, the actors’ minds “focus on the story [they] are telling,” said Syverson.
Syverson said her favorite part of any show is the “moment of discovery” in the actors. She also explained how much it means to her when she gets to witness when her students “finally get it… It gives them a sense of belonging and peace.” It brings her joy and helps her keep doing what she is doing. She described how much the drama club means to her. “They love me and support me…we [have] become such a family.”
