?Hayswood Theater and Community Unity announce new play PDF Print E-mail
???    Hayswood Theater and Community Unity would like to Announce the showing of a play entitled, Bang Bang You’re Dead. Free to the public. In this play, 15 drama students have to put themselves into the role of being the shooter, or the victim, of a school violence crime. They have real-life roles in the school shooting that spawns the play, to open at Hayswood Theater for three free to the public shows. The shows will be performed Friday and Saturday, September 5 and 6 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, September 7 at 2 p.m.
    Written by the award winning playwright, William Mastrosimone, this 45 minute play was inspired by those who survived and the families of Columbine High School Shootings. Mastrosimone gave his heartfelt testimony, saying he had to write something, “The national tragedy of kids killing kids sweeps this country and no one, not even the schools, the parents, the pundits, nor the government has a clue how this affects all of us,”
    The student actors are intensely dedicated to this workshop sponsored by Hayswood Theater and Community Unity, here in Harrison County. “Though it is a small town, and a good place to live,” said Mrs. Ponder, Director, “we do need to be aware and prepared to talk about this subject.” In her job, she works with many teens and knows first hand the issues they must deal with each day including: drugs, school safety, cyber-bullying, MySpace, even safe homes, etc. “This county is already ahead of the game,” Mrs. Ponder noted, “Safe Place, the Y, Gerdons, and those types of Programs really help young people have options.”
