REACH Students Create Monstrous New Production

The students of Jefferson Middle School's REACH program brought monsters from classic literature to the stage in a thrilling two-part production:The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Frankenstein Meets Dracula.  The production debuted January 23 and was completely student-written and produced.    

 

 

The play was presented on two nights with two different casts: Tuesday, January 23 and Wednesday, January 24 at 6:30 p.m.  There were also matinee performances throughout the school day on January 25 and January 26.  Students from Jefferson Middle School had the chance to catch the plays then.

Goals of the REACH program reflect the use of critical thinking and problem-solving skills.  In the first quarter, students analyze high school-level text.  In the second quarter, students work together to bring what they have learned to life through a theatrical production.  Students learn to write scripts, build sets, direct audio and lighting, as well as act on the stage.
