A.N. Myer Secondary School’s Drama Department is proud to be part of the In the Soil Arts Festival. We have a thriving Arts Community at our school and our Drama Department is over the moon with the opportunity to showcase the talents of our theatre troupe, Myer’s Masked Marauders. This piece of theatre is proof positive that lurking in the alleyway, waiting at the stage door, sometimes pays off. We are grateful to Sean Meldrum for graciously sharing his script with us, giving us free reign to interpret it as we saw fit, supporting us throughout the process and being our biggest fan. Jessica Danecker and Ron Dempsey recently won acting awards of merit at the local SEARS Drama Festival for their portrayal of Edee and Bullpig, the parents of your nightmares.
The cast and crew of “GNAW” also won the Mary Laundry Award for the troupe that best exemplifies the spirit of the festival.
