Hanover High’s drama club made its debut this year in the Massachusetts Educational Theater Guild Festival at Duxbury High School on Saturday, Feb. 27. Other schools competing included Hingham, Nauset, Rising Tide Charter, Xaverian Brothers, South Shore Charter, Scituate, and Duxbury.
Under the guidance of drama teacher Jake Plummer, the cast performed Tracks by Peter Tarsi. The 40-minute, one-act play tells the story of a group of strangers who meet in a subway station and soon find out they are all dead (no spoilers here!). Trying to decide if they are waiting for a train bound for heaven or hell, they reflect on their lives, the proud moments, transgressions, happiness and regrets.
“It was a lot of work, but in the end it changed me as a person,” said Cecelia Dimitroff, a junior in the cast. “It made me think about every action I do in real life and why I do it.”
Two casts were chosen and worked hard to prepare for performance, but only the festival cast competed. Both casts and crew include (in alphabetical order):
Jacki Campbell, Justus Carney, Siofra Carty, Madison Carroll, Abby Cummings, Cecelia Dimitroff, Julia Goslin, Sean Goslin, Anna Harper, Macy Hohenleitner, Jake Laprise, Alexander Light, Alexander Linn, Audrey Lloyd, Cameron Lunetta, Cameron McAuley, Caroline MacDonald, Michael Meads, Kayla Maslow, Chloe Minnehan, Heather Nash, Mike Nimeskern, Emily Patten, Billy Porter, Peter Scribner, Katie Scott, Emily Sweeney, Fred Trankels, Ava Whitney, Isabella Whitney
