On November 13th, students at Discovery High School were able to take center stage in performances that truly showcased a wide variety of their gifts and talents. Discovery High School’s “Night of Pantomime” was a great example of the determination and creativity that these students have. Fully directed, produced, and acted out by students of Mr. David Bozza’s 2nd period Drama class, the show was a complete original work of the students.
In a comical classroom setting, each student was paired in a group where they were expected to act out their own skits to show the concepts of the art of pantomime–essentially, the art of nonverbal communication. With hysterical characters and unexpected turns here and there, the production was a complete success!
Reflecting on the experience, senior Nick Fasanello stated, “The experience of directing and producing the pantomime show for Discovery proved the true power of cooperation and determination that each of us have. By performing a show entirely of our own, independent of teacher intervention, we saw how creative we (students) are.”
