The CVCS Drama Department put on a smashing production of William Shakespeare's "The Tempest" in spring of 2017.
It's hard to say goodbye to the Cole Valley theater department. It has enriched my life so much over the years. I started out in preproduction but never acted because of the short leash I kept myself on. With some convincing by some of the actors and an attempt to push through my own anxieties, I got the part of Officer O'Hara in Arsenic and Old Lace and I never looked back. It feels like far more than a year that I've been with these wonderful people. I would be a much different person had I not joined the program and I am infinitely thankful for all of their love and support. As for now, to the world, I am set free, yet always drawing near. ~ Devon Harris, Class of 2017
