So Much Drama! - 2

What are these students doing? It looks like they're just lounging around, having a good ol' time on sofas and cushy chairs.


Oh. Apparently they're rehearsing for a play.


In the few acting classes I took while in school, it was fairly obvious I wasn't cut out for the stage. But I did work on the sound crew for a few plays in high school. Unfortunately, I wasn't very good at that, either. As far as creative arts go, I should just stick with writing novels and stay out of the theater.

Unless...

Wait! What do their binders say? Thirteen Reasons Why??? Oh, I get it. These must be the students at Antioch Community High School I was telling you about, moving forward on their fall production.


Here are the actors and actresses who will play Clay and Hannah on different nights.


I wonder if they have any idea that they're taking a dream I didn't dare wish aloud and turning it into reality.

I wish I lived near there. It's quite a drive. But who knows maybe I can take some time of and head over anyways. Or maybe it will wnd up on youtube. How great for you though, this really is amazing.

Welcome back! Your photographs of your honeymoon were spectacular!

Thirteen Reasons is an exceptional books. I am working on a YA book and studied Thirteen Reasons (along with other books) for style and format. I can't say enough how good it is.

When can we expect a new book from you?

I just finished reading the school's script, which they wrote entirely on their own, and was extremely impressed. It gave me goosebumps! The staging is so creative.

And just now...I received a request from another school who would like to perform their own version.

This is getting fun!
