Galt students back on stage with Trap

Galt students back on stage with Trap

By Lawrence Belanger


With pandemic-related restrictions eased, Alexander Galt Regional High School’s long-standing community drama tradition is back on stage, with Trap, a play about exploring fear and how we as people respond to it. Directed by Galt teacher Lynsey Sylvester, the play is put on by an on and off-stage team of Galt’s most passionate dramatists. The Record spoke with some of the cast and crew to share their experiences and talk about the play.

“It’s my very first time with a performance,” says Adewel Pennec, Grade 11.

Pennec, an international student from France, plays a professor central to the play who studies fear. He says the hardest part in rehearsals was learning to project his voice loud enough on the stage. Grace Tetrault, also in Grade 11, plays the main survivor of the play’s inciting incident. “She does not want to talk about the incident, so they have to try to get through to her,” explains Tetrault.
