PRODUCTION NOTES

    Clements Theatre’s production of The Trojan Women is the second production of our 2020-2021 season.  The play focuses on the victims of war, the innocent bystanders, and the loss of hope, but not the loss of dignity.  It also explores the lingering effects of war that we discuss thousands of years later.  I have heard that “all war stories are really anti-war stories,” and that was the thought echoing in the words of Euripides’ play throughout the production process.  The women in the play represent a spectrum of lives effected by war with mothers, wives, daughters, in-laws and the interwoven relationships.  

    Thank you for supporting Clements Theatre’s production of The Trojan Women.  The current state of affairs challenges us to think creatively like never before.  Our students don’t shy away from a challenge, such as: producing a show outdoors with heat, cold, or rain, and the technical challenges of electricity, sunlight, outdoor audience seating, projections, and video streaming, some of which have never been attempted before at Clements.  Clements Theatre is committed to producing fully realized shows that showcase the talents of our students at every level of the production.  It was especially important to adapt our production to include opportunities for both online and face-to-face students while having health safety protocols integrated into the costumes, set, and lights, as well as changing our rehearsal and performance processes. The Trojan Women, a Greek tragedy, brings to mind Sisyphus and Icarus at times during the past few weeks. I am incredibly proud of the work that has gone into this show by our students.  I don’t think we flew too close to the sun, and when the boulder rolls down the hill we start pushing it right back up. 

    The performing arts department of Clements High School has an ongoing commitment to preparing our students for the top university training programs in the United States.  We continue challenging our students to adapt to the ever changing landscape of live entertainment in a supportive and safe learning environment.  The students have dedicated their time at home and school, evenings and weekends, for this project while achieving the impossible under unprecedented circumstances, all with a forgiving heart toward their directors who constantly ask for the impossible.
