Springfield to host a drama festival Rutland Herald | March 17, 2017 SPRINGFIELD — Springfield High School will host a regional drama festival on March 25, featuring the work of six area schools. The one-act plays will include both drama and comedy, and will include entries from South Burlington, Long Trail School, Thetford Academy, Sharon Academy and Springfield High School. Springfield will perform “Medea,” which features a fog machine and some PG-13 language, according to Rebecca Skrypeck, a drama teacher at the school. Other information about the content of the other plays include South Burlington’s “Lockdown,” which also includes PG-13 language. The Long Trail Schools “ Elephant’s Graveyard” deals with animal abuse, which might be difficult for some viewers. Thetford Academy’s play, “Amelia, Once More,” is a drama about an aspiring actress who becomes the character she plays. Sharon Academy’s offering, “Cut,” is described as “a comic exploration of the veil between acting and reality.” The festival starts at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, with plays performed during the morning, afternoon and evening, in three different blocks. Festival rules state that a person will not be allowed to enter the auditorium once a play has started, and that leaving is discouraged as well.
