This summer, Magister Gallagher and I will be co-directing the Latin Academy play, which is Mostellaria by Plautus. This play features a clever slave who tricks his master into believing his house is haunted so that the master’s son won’t get caught with his lover. It will be amazing and fantastic!
The play is a huge part of Latin Academy, and I encourage all of you to be involved in some way, whether you've ever tried theater before or not. (I mean, I had never done theater before, and here I am directing my eighth Plautus play!) Try out for a speaking part and maybe you'll play Philolaches, the young lover who bought and freed his girlfriend, Philematium. Maybe a non-speaking part is more your style and you can be a silly baggage carrier, helping the old man with his luggage from his three year journey abroad. Maybe you're more musically inclined and you can bring your instrument to play to accompany the actors. Or maybe you're artistic and you can help out painting the set or designing the cover art for the program. There really is something for everyone!
