Capo Valley only high school without a theater; it's hard on students who want to know why they've been neglected
Apr 24, 2007
Amanda Glowish, The Orange County Register "Capistrano Valley High School's drama students gather after school on a small stage in a common area of the school called The Mall. Rehearsing for an upcoming production of "Bye Bye Birdie," they compete to be heard over the bouncing of basketballs, slamming of lockers and a zamboni-like machine that washes the floors. The school doesn't have a theater, so drama students face endless interruptions during rehearsals. The Mall also serves as a cafeteria and garbage is left on the stage daily. The school's Drama Teacher, Emily Holke refers to the area as a "cafetorium. "The students are always asking me why we don't have a theater," said Holke. "We are the only school in the Capistrano School district without one."
