... East Grand Rapids Drama is alive and well. Each year this very active and vibrant program has over 200 students participating in at least one production. In addition to acting roles, opportunities abound for students to become involved backstage with stage managing, student directing, set construction, lighting and sound design, stage crew, publicity, costuming and makeup, and working as ushers and house managers.
Much of it is made possible by the East Grand Rapids High School Stage Boosters. This parent support group provides volunteer services for seven productions each year including staffing the Box Office, handling tickets sales, providing food and snacks for students during rehearsals, coordinating the cast party and umpteen other unsung roles that enable the kids to experience the world of live theater.
I know theatre and I know photography. Most importantly I know how to shoot live theatre... how to capture the energy and emotion of a play so that others will want to be there to see it themselves.
