PREVIEW: Theater Holiday Showcase

As everyone listens to their favorite holiday tunes, the Robinson Thespian Troupe 2660 prepares to bring you those songs live in their Winter Showcase. Broadway Knights, a variety show showcasing competition numbers, would usually be held in early October, but due to auditorium complications, the schedule has been altered and Broadway Knights won’t be until spring, next semester.

To hold people off, the thespian troupe has brought back the Holiday Showcase, which they haven’t done since 2018. The showcase is a variety show complete with Christmas songs, different performances and a medieval medley. The entire event lasts about an hour and a half, just long enough to include all your favorite holiday jingles.

This year’s showcase will be held on Dec. 14 and 15 at 7 p.m. in the auditorium. For students and staff, tickets cost $5 in advance and general admission is $10. Tickets will be available at the door.

The students have been working on their performances all year in preparation for the event.

“All of the performances we’ll be presenting have gone to competitions and done well enough to go to states. We hope that we’ll raise enough money from the showcase to go to states again this year,” said sophomore thespian, Jules Navarte.

The green signs hung around school promoting the event read “All I Want for Christmas is to Go to States!” All the funds raised from the showcase will go towards the troupe attending the Florida State Thespian Competition in March.

The performances will consist of monologues, large group numbers and some dialogue pieces. Some are Christmas-themed, and some are past performances that have become staple skits. Everyone in the troupe is involved in the performance somehow.

Make sure to buy a ticket to familiarize yourself with the culture at Robinson and witness the talent of some of your fellow students.

About the Contributor
Grace Shafer
Grace Shafer, Senior Staff Writer
Grace Shafer is a sophomore at Robinson and a senior staff writer for Knight Writers. This is her second year on staff. Along with journalism, Shafer likes to spend her time reading and watching films. Some of her favorite authors at the moment are Joan Didion and Eve Babitz. At the moment, Sse enjoys films such as "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", "Night of the Hunter" and "20th century." Her favorite directors currently are Greta Gerwig, Wes Anderson, and David Lynch. Even though Shafer describes herself to be a very high-maintenance person, she wishes to travel and backpack through all of Europe at some point in life because she believes it's a beautiful country and she has always loved it. This year, Shafer is most looking forward to her English class because she gets along with her teacher and they might start a film class and a literary magazine, both being things Shafer enjoys and can't wait to be able to be a part of. "I just love journalism and writing in general," Shafer said. Looking into the future, Shafer's dream job ties almost directly into what she's going to be doing in her English class this year. "My favorite thing ever and what I want to eventually pursue as a career is film," Shafer said. Profile by Heather Parker
