PlayLab: Holes

PlayLabs are artistic experiments working with original or adapted stories. Together we re-imagine literature. Students explore story lines, characters, dialogue, and character movements to foster a deeper understanding of each theatrical element and the role it plays in a performance. Students are allowed the freedom of artistic expression and play an active role in the creative process. PlayLabs are enhanced by sets, lights, costumes and all the theatre magic we can create.

Fall Theme: HOLES

Stanley Yelnats was given a choice. The judge said, “You may go to jail, or you may go to Camp Green Lake.” Stanley was from a poor family. He had never been to camp before.

Inspired by the Louis Sacher novel, students work as an ensemble to put their own spin on this story of mystery, betrayal and spotted lizards. Through acting exercises, group brainstorm, and improvisation, we create a world premiere studio play.
