A theatre is a place where people can come together and express themselves through another character. Lakeside offers this opportunity to students through a fall play.

This year students and adults were treated to a performance of Anne of Green Gables, which took place in the high school auditorium Nov. 2 and 4 at 7 p.m.

While turnout was good, the future goal is to make the fall show as big as the spring musical. Mrs. Sarah Haman, drama teacher, was very pleased with the turnout this year.

There were not any major unexpected problems that affected the play; however, illness was one problem the cast encountered. One student got very sick, and another dropped out.

Mrs. Haman says the cast always works very hard, but they do better when they perform.

“I think the cast always does better with an audience because it inspires you to do more,” she said. 

For Mrs. Haman, the most memorable part of Anne of Green Gables was having the opportunity to see the audience laughing and really enjoying the play. “To see the students really enjoy themselves on stage is one of the best things,” she said.
