BATTLE GROUND — Prairie High School Drama Club students gave it their all to put together a play, “Drama’s Rotten Showcase,” in a short amount of time, as students returned for hybrid online and in-person instruction earlier this year.
“We tried to approach this in a very low-stress way,” drama teacher Claire Verity said in a news release. “We tried to make it as minimal as possible, but still as polished as possible.”
Typically, the club would have wrapped up its season in May, but due to the abnormal school year, students only recently held their final performances.
Senior Becca McCormick wasn’t bothered by having to stick around longer than normal and is hopeful to continue in show business. She was one of two Prairie High School drama students, along with junior Neveah Warren, to have an original play read by actors at Portland Center Stage. She will intern there this summer.
