LOGAN — Logan High School has been chosen to be one of four Premiere Schools for Keegon Schuett’s new play, Goddess of Tears! This is an incredible opportunity for LHS students to work directly with the author (and students from the other Premiere Schools) to bring a never-before-seen show to life.
From the YouthPLAYS website:
Since nearly the beginning of time, Niobe has served as the Goddess of Tears in the digital Cloud of Olympus, approving or denying access to every single teardrop. But with mortal requests reaching staggering proportions and a memory pecking at her from behind her filter, it may be time for her to quit the program…if only the other gods would let her. Alone behind her desk and her malfunctioning filter, Niobe searches not only for the cause of her own locked-away cries, but also for a connection with someone that’s stronger than the divine wi-fi. Will she finally find herself again after all these years and tears, or will she be punished and disconnected for all of eternity?
Goddess of Tears was written specifically for virtual performance. In this time of uncertainty, the show will go on — online, that is! LHS students will work directly with the playwright, get to meet the cast and crew from the other Premiere schools, and eventually be listed in the front of the published script.
Mark your calendar for Nov. 20-22 for this very special show! If you have a high school student interested in acting or tech, share this with them! Auditions and crew interviews will be the second week of school.
