The Weston Ranch Community, including selected English classes, were treated to a theatrical production by the Weston Ranch HS Drama Greeks. The play featured many talented students including Elmer Figueroa (‘19), Saia Hill (‘19), Mary Walton (‘20) Shamar Dacus (‘19), Monique Rapier (‘19), and Julian Smith (‘18).

The play, “Why Darkness Seems So Light,” portrayed some of the struggles and topics some teenagers may go through include abuse, sexual assault and gun violence. The student acting was convincing and the audience seemed immediately immersed into the story from the very beginning.

Through the play’s multiple storylines and realistic dialogue, the audience is reminded that when it comes to problems, no one should feel alone.

As the character Nathan, played by Dacus (’19), pulled the trigger of a gun in an attempted suicide, I felt chills run through my body. You could just feel everyone’s sentiment through the stillness of the theatre.

The overall meaning of the production is that it is hard to spot these struggles in teenagers especially, since teens put on a mask.

This production displayed the topics that aren’t really talked about amongst teens, which makes it so important. It tells teenagers that we are not alone, rather so many of us are facing our own battles.

Overall, the whole production did a great job!
