On Friday, November 13th, Columbia held its second annual Arts in Unison show – a collaborative project of the English, Arts and Business Departments. This unique celebration of the Arts was composed of two one act plays, a digital short, and a musical intermission.
Classes equally contributed to the production: Mrs. Pivniceru’s Writer’s Craft class served as the Playwrights; Mrs. Ward’s grade 12 Drama Class and Mrs. Savelli’s grade 11 Drama calls performed the dramatization; music was provided by Mr. Lawlis’ grade 11 and 12 vocal classes and the school band; Mr. Ferreria’s Art classes were responsible for the art design; and Mrs. Story’s Art Classes prepared the Stage Design.
The plays were well-written, featured assorted themes and both had elements of comedy, drama , mystery, and adventure. The first play, No Contrast, focused on mental health, while the second play, Who’s Next, was a murder mystery.
