Nightfall with Edgar Allen Poe 

Image This past month I participated in Nightfall with Edgar Allen Poe as Montressor, the lead in the “Cask of Amontillado”. It was my first ever play so I was surprised that I got such a big part. We worked for over a month on blocking (knowing where to be on stage and when), remembering lines, and character development. The night of the show came, and I was nervous. What if I wasn't good enough? What if I forgot my lines? I went on stage with my stomach in knots. The show went great, I got a tremendous reaction from the crowd. Laughs, screams, gasps, and claps were audible reactions to every act of the show. My co-lead, Gianna Ludlam, was terrific as Fortunato and helped me along. Being a part of that show was one of the highlights of my high school career, and my only regret is that I had done it earlier. Other acts included Berenice, starring Tyler Baker and Kat Suarez, Annabel Lee, starring Sam Coyle and Alanni Torres, the Tell-Tale Heart starring Jack McElree, and finally Dr. Tarr and Professor Fether, starring Sam Coyle and Yaraina Rouse. A special thank you to Mrs. Charles, Mr.Young, and Mr. McCormack, who advised us throughout the show and made the experience that much more enjoyable. Written by Matt Carfagno
