Students Attend Annual Oswego State Drama Festival


G. Ray Bodley (GRB) students attended the 57th Annual Oswego State Drama Festival on May 3, where they had the opportunity to give a theatrical performance in front of their peers as well as participate in numerous theatrical workshops throughout the day.
 
Fulton students David Houck, Jeremy Herlowski and Michael Mankiewicz were the cast members to perform a version of “Romeo and Juliet” from “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged),” written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield, which received amazing reviews from the audience. GRB crew members included Victoria Eckhard, Erica Perwitz, Alysa Rosenbarker, Kayleigh Hotaling, Brandon Webb and Ean Stevenson. The theatre group was directed by faculty advisor Tom Briggs.
 
Not only did the students have the opportunity to perform in front of their peers from other schools, but they also got the chance to work with SUNY Oswego theater guides and technicians. In addition, they were able to participate in a multitude of theatrical workshops throughout the day including scene painting techniques, storytelling, musical theatre choreography, audio tech, improvisation and more.
 
Other schools who participated in the event included Auburn, John C. Birdlebough, Oswego City, Camden, Mynderse Academy and Red Creek.
