FDSH students write, present play

“A Sweet Demise,” a play written and performed by members of the Fort Dodge Senior High Creative Writing II Lab, will be presented at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Oleson Park Bandshell.

A freewill offering will be taken and donated to support maintenance of the bandshell.

After studying monologues and how to write them, the class did some background research, and then wrote and edited the play as a group.

They worked collaboratively to edit, with final revisions approved by the director and editor. After writing the play, the class decided they wanted to act it out themselves.

They have practiced several times and will be presenting their performance at this event.

To market the play, one student created a poster and designed a T-shirt that play members will wear on Wednesday. Two additional students created a “movie” trailer for the play and posted it on YouTube.
