The GCMS School Play provides a creative outlet for those students who are interested in the theater or any aspect of it. Students can choose to perform on the stage as an actor or work behind the scenes as a stage hand. Stage hands take on many roles; set production, lights, sound, costumes and advertising. Students work as a team under the guidance of a director to produce a major stage production. Rehearsals and stage hand work runs approximately twelve weeks, culminating in two nights of performance. This activity provides students with a memorable learning experience that will be long remembered!
