Saw the play *The Green Bird* Put on by Glen Rose High School Theatre Last Night

17 November 2007 at 9:31:27 AM

Not only is it nice to be able to see stage performances of well-known works locally, but the high school students involved did an impressive job. The play, by Carlo Gozzi, is about a wicked queen mother who, with the help of a poet, sabatoges her son's throne; his wife disappears and other shenanigans that are explained in the play. The Green Bird comes into the story by being the entity that is on the side of good.

The GRISD high school production was directed by Philip de la Santos. I very much liked the way he managed the *scenery* or backdrops, which, instead of painted backgrounds, were done by the actors in the chorus! They would run energetically on or around the stage and, with a mounting audial roar that snapped to position in a windup, arrange themselves in various positions to indicate, for example, castle walls, or the forest.

I thought everyone did a great job; my personal favorites, because I have a preference for character actors, were the performances of L Whatley, who played the King, B Jashocha, who played the peasant wife, and T W Dunn, who played the peasant husband; their comic timing was particularly very good.

The Glen Rose Reporter newspaper had an ad last week for this, and it looks like they will be doing another performance tonight at 7:00 pm at the Glen Rose High School auditorium, tickets $2 for students and $3 for adults. Well worth going to see.
