Lights, camera, action! It’s time for Winterfest, a season of student-led plays and peer performances ranging from short comedies to substantial dramas.
I stand in a blank room. Across from me is a line of desks filled by directors. All I have is a slip of paper, a single prompt in my hand. I’m not a trained actor. The last time I performed in front of a crowd was my fifth grade production of “101 Dalmatians.” So, I inhale, read over the script, and decide to act like a person who is slowly going insane.
I never understood what it meant to be a Lawrentian until I left campus. I had half-listened to all school speeches about the subject, but the first time I felt a real sense of identity was at the Young Writer’s Workshop this summer.
Through House and Harkness, Lawrenceville challenges a diverse community of promising young people to lead lives of learning, integrity, and high purpose. Our mission is to inspire the best in each to seek the best for all.
