The Smiths Station Theater Department is thrilled to present The Station, a play about a small town pinpointing many people’s lives as they go trough the trials and tribulations of living in a rural town.
Trinity Williams, a first-year student in the theater department, helped write the play.
“I did not write the show myself,”she said. “We all contributed to different parts of The Station. We wanted to show the good side of living in a small town and that there is so much more to us than the stereotypes.”
There are no lead roles in the play. The entire cast is part of an ensemble with the actors playing many different parts.
This is not the first student-written play to be performed at Smiths Station High School.
“We have also written Shakespeare 101, a show that was created to teach Shakespeare plays to high school students in an engaging and entertaining way,”Williams said.
The Station will be performed at 7 p.m. EST on Nov. 9, 10, and 11 at Smiths Station High School’s Studio Theater. The box office will open at 6:30 p.m. Admission costs $7.
