On December 6th, 2018 First Coast High School presented the play “Twitch”. The play is about 30 minutes long and had two showings at 3:00-3:30p.m and 7:00-7:30p.m.
Twitch is a comedy set in present time in a small time written by Stephen Gregg. The play highlights an alien couple stranded on earth trying to be human observing and studying a human couple for them to help with their expected child.
Before the start of the play students were introduced with an amazing monologue by Aliya Coleman who also is the director of the play.
The play started off with the human couple Nancy and Don played by Savannah Wells and Nathaniel Hughes. Later entered the alien couple Emma and Aiden played by Elise Huntley and Manvel Harris.
An outstanding performance by all the actors, they all had really good acting. Aiden (Manvel Harris) even had the crown laughing, confused, and interested in the noise he did known as the “Twitch”.
Twitch the play relates to the alien’s actions of “twitching” that the human couple noticed.
The cast and production crew of the First Coast High School play has been working and planning the play since September. Choosing the play was quite easy to them, they were given choices and Twitch stood out the most to all of them because it seemed fun.
The play was very student led and put into the hands of the students. If they needed props they either brought it or made it themselves.
Other behind the scenes members who helped make this play happen were Mr. Thomas, Liana Claudio (assistant stage manager), Georgette Jones-Walley (stage manager), and Amelia Drury (stage crew and understudy).
On Saturday December 8th 2018 the cast will be taking the play to District Competition.
