“Alone, Together” is another virtual play by Enumclaw High students

The play will be performed April 1-3 and 8-10.

The Enumclaw High Drama Department is again going virtual, this time offering a timely musical dealing with life in a COVID-19 world.

Students, faculty, staff and volunteers have been working on a production of “Alone, Together,” which will be performed April 1-3 and again April 8-10.

This marks the third time EHS Drama has come together for a virtual performance, but the first time a play has been offered over two weekends. The cast and crew performed “Frankenstein” in late October and “It’s a Wonderful Life” in December.

“We are so excited for our production of ‘Alone, Together’ at the beginning of April,” Co-Director Juliet Bannerot shared in an email. “This show is all about the pandemic, specifically during quarantine last year. It is about what it is like for the world to be alone, together.” She and Allison Abrahamse are the faculty members in charge of the department.

Enumclaw Drama is transforming the play into a full blown musical with dancing, singing and acting. It will boast original compositions written by EHS Band Director Ben Barker, original choreography by Amanda Kelly, and vocal coaching from EHS Choir Director Paul Scott.

“Even though the show will still be virtual, we are able to have all our actors, dancers, and singers together in-person,” Bannerot emailed. “We have been able to rehearse in the auditorium every day of the week (following COVID safety protocols of course).”

How did the play come together? Promotional materials explain it like this: “As California entered a ‘stay at home’ order due to the coronavirus pandemic, UC-Santa Barbara’s Launch Pad commissioned 24 distinguished playwrights to pen monologues and short plays inspired by the prompt ‘Alone, Together’ and written to be performed live on Zoom.”

Like EHS Drama’s other virtual presentations, “Alone, Together” will be offered free, but there is a fee connected with getting the Zoom link. To get the link, which begins at $2.59 for a single viewer, visit: enumclawperformingarts.com. Visitors will click on “tickets” and select the date they wish to view the virtual performance.

The 7 p.m. show will last two hours, with a 10-minute intermission.
