San Francisco University High School is thrilled to announce that the 2020 Student Drama Series will take place on Friday, February 28, showcasing eight completely new theatrical endeavors from eight UHS students: Lukas Bacho ’20, Claudia Bruce ’20, Hayden Deffarges ’20, Sebastian Fischer ’20, Kyra Kushner ’20, Eve Leupold ’20, Mary Qiu ’20, and Sadie Scott ‘20. The 2020 Student Drama Series is the culmination of 7 months of work by the Advanced Projects in Theatre class and it includes the participation, as creators, designers, performers, assistant directors, stage managers, and technicians, of at least 40 UHS students. The projects are varied and diverse—everything from an adaptation of scenes from the great Chinese Playwright Gao Xingjian‘s The Other Shore; to a comedic piece about love lost and found all centered around a women’s restroom and the “Missed Connections” page on craigslist; to an exploration of masculinity as filtered through the relationship between a father, a son, and the women in their lives; to a satirical horror-comedy mash-up that dives into the tricky issue of body dysmorphia as young women come-of-age. The students in Advanced Projects have been imagining, creating, and writing, since at least August, and directing, re-writing, designing, and rehearsing since November, and they are excited to share their work with an audience.
Please join us and support our incredibly talented Advanced Projects students when the Student Drama Series takes the stage on Friday, February 28 for TWO showings at 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm in the UHS Theater. Admission is FREE!
