Take Two Drama Club Ready for Successful Year
Take Two Drama Club Ready for Successful Year
Posted on 08/20/2019

Last season was a banner year for the Sussex Central High School drama department and the Take Two Drama Club.

First, SCHS presented its groundbreaking production of “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” by Simon Stephens, the first professional or non-professional production of the award-winning international classic in Delaware. This was followed by participation in the national Poetry Out Loud competition at the semifinal and state final levels by rising seniors Emma Evan and Brandon Greenlee.

In the spring, rising seniors Tarron Coursey and Gary Bush, as part of the popular Rehoboth Reads community program, presented an original adaptation of world-famous lawyer and activist Bryan Stevenson’s teen version of his classic memoir “Just Mercy.” The presentation, made to

middle school students in the International Baccalaureate program, served as Coursey and Bush’s community service project for Sussex Central’s own IB program.

Finally, Sussex Central’s spring musical, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” broke all SCHS box office records.

“It’s daunting to follow a year of successes like this, but we’re certainly going for it in our 2019-2020 season,” SCHS drama teacher David Warick said.

Warick noted that this season’s offerings include the popular “Almost Maine” by John Cariani (December 13 at 7:00 p.m. and December 14 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.); “A Celebration of Jazz” for Sussex Central’s annual Black History Month presentation (Tuesday, February 25 at 6:00 p.m.); “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson” (March 27 at 7:00 p.m. and March 28 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.), a cult classic, emo-rock musical about our 7th President; and the first annual Teen Improv Competition (May 13 at 7:00 p.m.) with competing teams from around the state.

“There may even be a few more theatrical surprises around Halloween and Valentine’s Day,” Warick added.

The Take Two Drama Club is an independent (501c3) non-profit, tax exempt organization which supports the production of plays and musicals for the students of Sussex Central High School. All ticket proceeds go directly back into the production of future shows and to support the students of SCHS in studying and creating theatre.
