SIDNEY — The Drama Department at Fairlawn will present live theatre this weekend. The play, “2222: The Zombie Apocalypse,” is being produced by special arrangement with Heuer Publishing, LLC. In association with Brooklyn Publishers, LLC.
The production is a collaborative first at Fairlawn. The Fairlawn Ag Department, under the direction of Nathan Sailor, helped to find and construct the set. The art teacher, Becky Gerardi and junior Jade Courtney designed and applied makeup for the zombies in the cast, and all of the music heard during the performance was digitally composed by Fairlawn band students under the direction of Jacquelyn Jenkinson.
The show features rock, techno, country, folk, and other musical genres during the course of the production. The director, high school English teacher Liz Maxson, has been excited about this opportunity all year.
“I have been blessed to work with my colleagues to help showcase the talents of our students at Fairlawn. The arts thrive here and are supported well by the Fairlawn community. I am so grateful and thrilled to work with all of the talented individuals here,” she said.
