South Side High School students stage self-directed plays


Seniors in South Side High School’s theatre class led their classmates in putting on five student-directed plays on Jan. 4 and 5 at the school’s auditorium.

South Side students can take the class for four years, and seniors are given the opportunities to lead the student-directed plays each year. The one-act plays, which each feature different casts and crews, are done in addition to the faculty-directed fall play and spring musical.

This year’s plays included “Passionella,” directed by Francis DeRiso, “7 Ways To Survive The Zombie Apocalypse,” (Ciara McDonald and Grace Woythaler) “Lockdown,” (Athena Miller) “That’s Not How I Remember It,” (Annie Bella) and “The Customer is Always Wrong,” (Julia DeLuca and Rachel Neusy d’Ogimont).
