Quite recently the school’s theatre arts department has decided to put on a play of the movie “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” in early May and have asked the art classes to help out by creating the masks for the cast of the play. The play will be hosted here at Garner.
Only a few choice masks will be used in the play for the cast themselves while others will be made for promotional purposes. Now some of you may be wondering, “Why doesn’t the theatre arts department make the masks?” Well, Crystal Gephart (8) says, “The art classes should make the masks because all of the drama students are too busy preparing for the play making props, remembering lines, etc.”
Another question is, “What about the parts to the play?” This question has been asked because people are questioning if everyone got a role that suits them perfectly. “Yes and no because some people should have gotten a role best suited for them but didn’t because someone was supposedly ‘better’ than them,” says Vanessa Huerta (8).
No matter what, this show is going to be great and should not be missed!
