The weekend of November 16-18, SHS drama program put on the production “Hiding in the Open,” directed by Erin Sousa-Stanley.

“Hiding in the Open” is based on two girls that have to flee from their home in Poland with false papers to get away from the Gestapo. They then land in Germany, where they survive by working at a hotel alongside Nazis, having to keep their true Jewish identities a secret.

One student actor, Erich Phelps, sophomore, said “This show was such a wild ride and I’m very lucky to have been given the chance to play these roles in such a story. This was one of the most serious and sad productions I’ve been in so far, but I’m glad I got to experience it with such an amazing group of people.”

Overall, going to this production was a wonderful experience and would recommend coming to see their next performance, “Hello Dolly,” in the spring.
