IHS Drama Department begins 2023-2024 season

By High Arrow Staff

To kick off the 2023-2024 season, director Mrs. Leah Lyons and the cast of “A Play About a Dragon” have been working tirelessly to develop a unique and engaging show for the Indiana community. 

“A Play About a Dragon,” By Steph DeFerie, is a comedy set in the Middle Ages with a troupe of traveling players who choose to perform their play, you guessed it – about a dragon, to the King. However, what the traveling players do not realize is that they agreed to slay an actual dragon! With the help of a secret-keeping prince, and a few others, can the players complete their task? Come see the play this weekend to find out. 

When discussing the play’s preparation, Mrs. Lyons noted, “This group of actors is really diving into their character development. They are considering the purpose and impact of their character and how their reactions are related to the actions of the rest of the company. Comedy is not easy, but this group is working very hard in rehearsal.”

This play is full of humor and lots of laughs. Performers heavily rely on audience interaction and energy to encourage their performance, especially with comedy. Mrs. Lyons feels the laughs will come easily to the audience on show nights as a result of the cast’s impressive performance. 

“My two favorite parts of the show so far are watching the cast and having so much fun with this comedic script. We laugh a lot in rehearsal,” Mrs. Lyons mentioned.
