Next performances of Voices out of Chaos: January 19 and 20
On Friday, January 19 at 7 pm at Yorktown, the Theatre III & IV classes will perform 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 the Virginia High School League (VHSL) One Act play competition on Saturday, January 20 at 4 pm at Marshall High School (7731 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church, VA).  Be sure to attend one of these shows.  If you can't see the show in person, watch this video, filmed by the Arlington Career Center.
