Patriot Productions Virtual Talent Showcase

Kiersten Buckley, Co-Editor in Chief

As they say, “the show must go on!”. It seems that the FTHS Drama Club really took this saying to heart with their most recent endeavor- a virtual talent showcase. 

In this incredibly innovative experience, Patriot Productions members performed a monologue, song, or dance. These performances were all edited together to form a two act showcase! This showcase also marks the FTHS co-directorial debut of Ms. Robbins! Having previously directed shows at Colts Neck, the FTHS Drama Club is excited to welcome her! Director Mrs. Richardson also helped to organize and plan the event, which will be streamed tomorrow, November 25th! If you miss out though, don’t worry- you can stream the event up until December 13th to rewatch the showcase.

You can access the showcase by using the link . After clicking the “access” button on that page, you will be forwarded to an area to purchase a free ticket if you click the “get ticket” button. After entering your name and email, you will receive a free ticket and a code to the showcase. After entering the code, you will be ready to watch! Again, streaming will begin at 7:00 on November 25th and end at 11:45 on December 13th. Don’t miss out!

I may be a bit biased since I am both editing and performing in the showcase- but this event is a once in a lifetime experience. In the comfort of your own home, you will be able to see your classmates and friends perform! The event is also free of charge, although donations are always welcome. If you enjoy this showcase, make sure to keep an eye out for future virtual events that the drama club is planning! 

The event will be edited by students Vanessa Gorman, Kiersten Buckley, Hunter Madden, and Gianna Longo. Below is a list of every student who is performing, and the title of their acts. I hope you can make it to the showcase- the show must go on!
