Getting Ready for Shrek

The theater department is getting ready for the spring musical, so technical theater classes are busy at work making props.

Dunbar drama teacher, Mrs. Alicia Henning, is leading her class in preparation for Shrek the Musical. Students have learned multiple stitches this semester, and are putting their knowledge to the test by making sunflowers that will be used in the play.

“Don’t let stage fright keep you from joining the theatre community,” Mrs. Henning said. “There are a lot of roles to play in a production.”
