Finding Balance Between Friendship and Leadership

“The Freshman Play is a great way for freshmen to be introduced to the high school theatre department--through the leadership of their upperclassmen peers,” said Amanda Urban, the teacher-liaison for the play.  

Senior directors are only three years older than their cast. Finding the balance between being a friend and someone who gets things done can get complicated—especially when your younger sister is in the play, notes Elizabeth.

Learning lines early tops the list of lessons the senior directors want to pass on.

"The freshmen have worked hard and we’ve seen them progress," said Katie Gebbia, the junior director who shadows Elizabeth and Fayth.
