Drama students at Peoria High School are kicking off their 2020-21 season with a production titled, fittingly, “Pandemic Play.”
The concept is simple: students decided to select songs and scenes from various shows of their choosing, and will string all the performances together. The production will feature four songs and three scenes.
“For some of them this is their very first play ever. It’s a great experience for them,” PHS drama teacher Jeremy Selim said.
Due to coronavirus precautions, however, the production is invite-only in order to minimize live audience numbers at the campus’ Ronald Selim Performing Arts Center, 11200 N. 83rd Ave.
Actors will present a preview night on Tuesday, Nov. 3, and will follow with standard shows Wednesday through Friday, Nov. 4-6.
