This past Friday, Tri-School Theatre’s Acting 3/4 class performed their self-written play, Double Standard. It was an emotional piece that every high schooler could relate to because it included themes such as trying to fit in, underage drinking, talking about feelings, and having friendship troubles. The show took its own twist on these themes by showing what would happen if the characters had done the right or wrong thing in certain situations. It was a beautifully written story, told through acting and dancing.

“The Acting 3/4 show was a really amazing way for us as young artists to create something that is ours and ours alone,” Rosary junior Allyson San Roman said about her acting experience. “I told parts of the story through dance, which is something that’s really special to me, so it made the show that much greater.”

“The show was cool because we all worked together to create every part of it, from the lines to the blocking to the directing,” Servite junior and Tri-School actor Erik Mercado said. “It taught us a lot about how we all think and work and how we can each share our strengths best to create art together.”

The show included many Rosary Royals, such as Allyson San Roman ’19, Sierra Warner ’18, Molly Renze ’18, and Olivia Hennessey ’18, all accomplished actresses. Joy Joukhadar ’19 helped with the technical side of the show, being in charge of the lights and sound effects. She gave the actors a beautiful set that helped elevate the story.

“The show had a message of bullying and peer pressure awareness, which is something I appreciated. We often forget about how the smallest things in someone’s life could end up causing an explosion,” Rosary senior Frankie D’Alessandro told The Royal Reporter after watching the play. “Although, I’d have to say that my favorite part was watching one of my best friends Olivia Hennessey play a role that is the complete opposite of her personality. It was nice to see her get out of her comfort zone, and do so well at it.”

Overall, the play showcased an amazing way to tell an effective story, complete with solid acting, dancing, and set design.
