For three nights only, Oct. 28, 29 and 30 in the Gertrude Long Harris Theatre at Tallulah Falls School, the TFS Players delivered lively performances in Miss Beth, a short, dark comedy with a passing resemblance to a certain, unspeakable Shakespearean play, by Don Zolidis.
Miss Beth was prepared for production by the Upper School’s Theatre Arts classes as an entry into this year’s GHSA Regional One-Act competition.
The 41-member team was challenged with incorporating and adapting to double casting of most roles and personnel changes with each show, according to Director Jonathan Roberts.
“That’s a real higher-level task and focus required … with sporadic and limited rehearsals for interchanging main characters,” Roberts said. “I decided to pursue the show in that way in order to give more students the opportunity to take part in the process since I had so very many to engage. It meant the students would have to be mature, patient, practical and gracious. This was a true test of our mettle.”
