Kubasaki High School, Okinawa, Japan | February 25, 2020
On Wednesday, 26 February, Kubasaki High School’s Far East Drama Team hosted Kadena High School’s Far East Drama Team in order to hold a mini-Far East Drama event. The event organized by Mrs. Veronica Davis, Ms. Andrae Henderson, and Mr. Kelly Dolan was deemed a success. This event enabled students to participate in workshops and perform their individual and one acts which they have worked tirelessly on since January. Kadena’s one act “Perfect Score” by Katie Henry was enjoyed by Kubasaki’s team and the message regarding the pressures to perform was one they could relate to as they look ahead to the future. Kubasaki’s one act “Women and War” by Jack Hilton Cunningham brought tears to the eyes of Kadena’s Far East Drama Team with its tribute to military families and the female perspective on war. The workshops enjoyed by the students were character development, auditioning tips, closing the open scene, and age make-up. While it was not the full experience that is invaluable to these performers, the mini-Far East Drama was able to bring closure to the students whose event was cancelled on Friday, 21 February. The organizing team would like to thank their administrators James Strait and Kris Kwiatek for supporting this joint event.
