GEF Pre-Show Reception – Friday, October 11th

The Goochland Education Foundation (GEF) is a consistent supporter of the fine arts and Drama Department at GHS, and we look forward to collaborating with them in just two weeks!

 

Before our opening night for our fall production, Almost Maine, GEF will be hosting a pre-show reception with light hors d’eourves and refreshments. The reception will take place in the high school cafeteria on Friday, October 11th from 6 to 6:45 PM. Admission to this event is free and is open to the public. At this reception, we would like to honor the role that GEF has had on the development of the Drama Department. At this reception, you will hear from three theatre students, discussing the impact that Goochland Drama has had on their lives.

THE STORY:

Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

“ALMOST, MAINE is a series of nine amiably absurdist vignettes about love, with a touch of good-natured magic realism…witty, romantic, unsentimental. A beautifully structured play, with nifty surprise endings (most but not all of them happy).” —NY Times. “Sweet, poignant, and witty. Nearly perfect. ALMOST, MAINE’s charm is real. [It] packs wit, earns its laughs and, like love, surprises you.” —NY Daily News. “Mega-hit ALMOST, MAINE lands somewhere between Norman Rockwell and Our Town. Unabashedly unhip. There is no pretense of an edge here—the show offers a sweetness and decency that’s become rare at the theater. At this point, it’s a welcome breath of fresh air.” —New York Post.

Goochland Drama Presents the Crucible!

For our fall production, the Goochland Drama Department presents Arthur Miller’s The Crucible.

THE STORY: The story focuses upon a young farmer, his wife, and a young servant-girl who maliciously causes the wife’s arrest for witchcraft. The farmer brings the girl to court to admit the lie—and it is here that the monstrous course of bigotry and deceit is terrifyingly depicted. The farmer, instead of saving his wife, finds himself also accused of witchcraft and ultimately condemned with a host of others.
Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play. This exciting drama about the Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem is both a gripping historical play and a timely parable of our contemporary society. “A powerful drama.” —NY Times. “Strongly written.” —NY Daily News.
