Fall Play: A Production for the Ages
Ushering in a new school year, DA students, led by drama teacher Mr. Bohanek, geared up to put on a fall production that will leave the audience smiling. Titled “Picasso at the Lapin Agile,” the production is set to astound both students and visitors alike with its ridiculous humor and surprising twists.
As Tyler Statkevicus, who plays main character Einstein, described, the show takes place when “Einstein and Picasso meet in a bar in Paris and share their ideals with each other.” The unlikely pair debate about their worldviews, and their conversation comes to life as they interact with the people around them.
The comedy entails many surprises and elements that will keep the audience engaged and thoroughly entertained. “We’ll get some laughs, we’ll get some gasps,” Statkevicus said. And sophomore Ani Bryce, who plays “An Admirer,” held back no words. “It’s a lot funnier and more mature than anything DA has seen so far,” she said.
In addition to bringing color and comedy onto DA’s stage, this year’s fall play worked to bring the cast and crew closer together. “Everyone jokes around and is really encouraging to everyone else,” Bryce said.
Senior Ellie Dusek, a veteran on the stage and performing her seventh production at DA, agreed. “The show is allowing me to get to know people in new ways,” she said.
The cast and crew have worked tremendously hard to put on the production of “Picasso at the Lapin Agile,” and the DA community should be prepared for a wondrously ridiculous show.
