Senior directing first show

Sarah Rapson
There may not have been a show this week in the McIntosh auditorium if senior Sarah Rapson hadn’t stepped up and asked drama teacher Michele Stone if she could direct a show. The Advanced Drama Class did a one act play, “The Swimmer” earlier this fall, breaking in the new auditorium for the drama department but Rapson didn’t want to wait for the spring musical to close out her high school career. Bitten by the directing bug after siting at the helm of a one act play, “Class Action,” last year, she spent the summer reading plays, searching for a show that she’d like to direct this fall. She found “The Compleat Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” and approached her teacher, who gave her permission to helm the show.
