Watford High School Theater for a unique horror show at the upcoming play

WATFORD CITY, ND (KUMV) – Watford City High School’s theater department has a long history of performing. This year, they’re taking a unique approach to a genre not commonly used at the high school level.

Members of Watford City Theater Club love to perform.

“The cast was really great. There are many great people. Overall, it’s a good atmosphere,” said sophomore Aiden Hilleren.

This show is probably their hardest show yet.

“Personally, it’s expanded my acting ability more than I’m used to. It’s a good thing,” senior Athena Sasser said.

They take on the horror and horror of the Gothic in the play “Shudarovar: Tales of Poe”. It’s a series of short stories based on stories by Edgar Allan Poe.

“It’s going to be kind of shocking. I’ve never seen a performance like this before,” junior Madison Enderle said.

This is a genre not typically performed in high school.

“Have you ever been a scary actor in a haunted house? It gives you that kind of soul and energy,” Sasser said.

The band is determined to not only wow the crowd, but impress the judges at the upcoming state play competition.

“We hope we can do really well and show that this is a really good thing,” Hilleren said.

The public can see their performances at the Watford Town High School Theater on Thursdays and Fridays at 6:00pm and Saturdays at 2:00pm and 6:00pm.

Tickets are a voluntary donation and the show is recommended for ages 13 and up.

The state performance is scheduled for April 3.
