After many weeks of rehearsals, the curtain rises on Lord Of The Flies, the Lausanne Upper School Theatre fall play for 2019.
Lord of the Flies, from the William Golding novel, traces the disintegration of the civilized individual into the savage.
"While the novel deals only with British schoolboys, we have chosen to cross-gender the story in order to add more texture and complication into the story.," Theatre Department Chair/Director of EPAC Estes Hammons said.
Sophie Faughnan '20 and Sultan Shah '20 play the protagonists of the story and their complicated relationship sets the tone for the actions that occur. Josh Pearce '21 plays the role of Piggie, the soul and spirit of the civilizing force.
"A cast and crew of over twenty students from all upper school grade levels have been preparing this show since August 22," Hammons said.
There will be three performances in total. On October 3 and 5, you can see the show at 7 p.m. and a Sunday matinee is offered October 6 at 2 pm.
Tickets are $5 and $10 and are sold in the Adams Lobby of Elder Performing Arts Center an hour before showtime.
*The show is rated PG-13 due to the violence and subject matter so grades 7-12 might be appropriate.
