Next performances of Voices out of Chaos at Yorktown: November 29 and January 19
In late October, the Yorktown Theatre III & IV classes performed Voices Out of Chaos, an original play developed by the students in response to current events.  The show follows a young girl’s journey as she attempts to make sense of the chaos created by the barrage of daily headlines. The students will perform the show in school on November 29.  They will take the show to the Virginia High School League (VHSL) One Act play competition on January 20.  Be sure to attend the preview show on January 19!
