HELDEN Play - Tickets On Sale!
PTSA, I wanted to formally invite everyone to Rose Hill Middle School and Stella Schola's first in-house and completely original Spring Production this May. The play takes place in 1989 East Germany, and follows a secret group of artists and the spies tracking their every move. Every single component of the play was made by us. I wrote the script, and over 50 students dreamed up, designed, and constructed every other aspect of the production. Original music, costumes, set pieces, visual art, and characters were all brought to life by the passionate and inspiring theatre technicians, artists, musicians, costume designers, and actors. ... read full article
