DWHS Spring Play - Onyx

Top story image

A Black Light Production

A new style of drama was brought to the DWHS stage with the black light production “Onyx.” The play was a visual delight with the focus being the costumes of white and bright neon colors contrasted with a pitch black stage. The black lighting enhanced the colors and the performers’ exaggerated movement. Short individual scenes of dancing, comedy, and melodrama including puppets, chub suits, vegetable “users,” and skeletons allowed the versatile group of performers to take part in several scenes. Some of the scenes were original pieces crafted by the students themselves, while others were adapted pieces. The drama was performed on Thursday, April 10; Saturday, April 12; and Sunday, April 13. . . . read more
