Once again, the spring shows were a major success for the Oak Lawn Theater Program! There was three shows in total, including the contest play, children’s play, and group interpretation. The Children’s Play was Inside Out, Group Interpretation with Little Shop of Horrors, and Contest Play with Sans Merci. These three shows, ranging from playful to heartbreaking, all proved how hard the students and staff worked to put on an amazing production.

The shows began with the children’s play, Inside Out. Emily Simmons, who played Riley, stole the audiences’ hearts with the touching story of feelings, memories and emotions. This show was very lighthearted and funny, with great acting and quick punchlines.

Following this was Little Shop of Horrors. The cast had great chemistry and showed it in their final shows in early April. The show encompassed the lives of Seymour, Audrey and Mr. Mushnik as they deal with the powerful plant called Audrey 2 who just can’t seem to be satisfied with the actions of Seymour. Getting increasingly powerful throughout the course of the play, the audience watched as Audrey 2 began to take over the lives of everyone around it.

Lastly, the theater program put on the production of Sans Merci, starring Abbey Dayton, Abby Moore, and Aisling Berry. The girls teamed up to put on an outstanding last show, following the story of two lovers who had good intentions in a very bad situation. Tracy and Kelly make attempts to better the world through their journeys, but face loss and misery in their endeavors. The story was beautiful, poetic, and overall capturing to watch. The actresses were true to their given characters, and even jerked a few tears from the audience following the end of the show.

Overall, the theater program had another outstanding run this year with their three productions. Hopefully next year they can do even better in their brand new performing arts center!
