NAMS Drama Production “13”

Nazareth Area Middle School’s Drama Club is performing their fall show on November 11th and 12th.   The drama teacher and director, Mr. Salevsky, chose the play “13”  because he saw this show done on Broadway in 2009.  He liked it because it was the only show he has ever seen where the cast was entirely made up of kids.

 “From the first scene, there was so much energy, and then I knew I needed to do this show someday,” said Mr. Salevsky.

 “I had to wait for the play to become available since it’s a new show, and you have to wait for the off Broadway version to come out.”  Mr. Salevsky waited for the play, and was excited when it finally arrived!

 Mr. Salevsky shared that auditions were not an easy decision.  When asked about the selection process he stated, “It was really tough; over 70 people auditioned and this play has a very small cast of 17, and that includes ensemble.”

“The part that was actually the hardest was choosing all of the roles for the students that were selected.”

 The male lead, Evan Goldman (Chris Singer), said “We are like a family, we all get along.” A bond that was apparently made over a few months, is working very well.

 Their first performance is approaching on November 11th at 7:30 PM in the Middle School’s Auditorium. The next two performances are the following day November 12th at 2:00 PM and 7:30PM.

 I personally believe this show will be an unbelievable success because of the great chemistry the students have on stage. Come out and support our NAMS Drama Club. Tickets are $7.00 for pre-sale and $5.00 at the door. Good luck to the Drama Club, “break a leg!”
