This month, students will test their skills during the Student Directed Shows. The performances will be held in the Octorium on Dec. 10 and 11 at 7:30 p.m. Each of the shows has been cast and directed by a member of the directing class. Auditions were open to the student body and those cast have been practicing three or four times a week for about a month. Many of the student directors have already had a bit of experience in directing but they are still relatively new to the task. "I hope to stretch myself as a director," said junior Jenny Reber, one of the student directors. "I am going to experiment with new techniques and am excited to see what comes from them and what my actors bring to the table."
