The drama department at CM Russell High School has just completed their final play of the year, “Nunsense”. Chris Evans, the director of the theater department, said “this is a musical about nuns and a fundraiser after a horrific accident”. About 15 to 20 students help set up “Nunsense” with practice starting in October in preparation for the play.
The Drama Department is no stranger to community fundraising and has decided to raise money for “Shop With A Cop,” a fundraiser that the Great Falls Police Department has been running since 1997. This fundraiser fundraiser offers underprivileged children a holiday shopping spree. According to the Great Falls Police Protective Association’s website about Shop With A Cop, “The children, nominated by agencies and schools in the Great Falls community, are matched with Great Falls police officers who offer them a day. lively shopping. “
With the help of the community, the ministry was able to raise $ 2,176.67. “It makes me proud to be a member of the Great Falls community, it shows that theater can do good while entertaining,” said Evans.
Evans is in his 12e year of teaching and helped establish the Drama Department which is “one of AA’s premier drama departments.” There were six screenings of “Nunsense” in total, and Evans also mentioned his appreciation, especially towards the 10 seniors who helped put the show on.
Next year the drama department will release another show called “Trap”.
