On Friday the 13th of October, a spooky first annual FCPS Drama-Palooza workshop took place at Frederick Community College.

Students who participated in any drama class at Linganore had the opportunity to attend.

The first of its kind in the county, staff at FCC taught different lessons to theatre students. This included learning how to make artificial blood and costume design.

Drama-Palooza was planned by FCC Professor, Tad Janes. Katie Rattigan was the presenter for the class, “Blood, gore and glass.”

Students learned how to apply stage make-up in the class “Make-up (Zombies and Gore).”

The challenge students also faced in a class was they had to make a Renaissance dress with only found items in the costumes closet. The instructor was Stephanie Hyder.

Mrs. Angela Smithhisler, dance, drama, and social studies teacher took a total of 19 students on the field trip.

Smithhisler really enjoyed the field trip because of the many workshops for the students.  She noted that the entire trip was free.

I love seeing kids get involved with everything drama, and it was really cool to see them be able to choose activities they are interested in, and also see them be hands on,” said Smithhisler.

“It was a fun and educational day that allowed me to explore various parts of theatre. You didn’t have to stick to any singular topic within theatre, you could attend a specific effects makeup workshop then a dance workshop right after. It was diverse within itself,” said Presley Dougherty.
