Due to the school year being held virtually, many extracurricular activities have had to adapt and change drastically. Theatre had one of the biggest changes, because no plays have been able to be performed this year.  

This has not stopped students and teachers from getting creative.  Teacher Kaitlyn Daniels gave students a chance to express their creativity with the Redlands East Valley Writers Bakeoff.  The Writers Bakeoff was a class for the spring quarter where students were able to write and create their own plays.

Six plays in total were created and performed.  Each of these plays are available to the public via the Redlands East Valley High School website.  From all different varieties and locations, every play tells a tale that the students told through playwriting.

The showcases of student plays are a replacement of the spring play that normally takes place in the spring at Redlands East Valley. “I had a dedicated, creative, hard-working group of students that made this project and its final results possible.” says Kaitlyn Daniels, the theater director at Redlands East Valley High School. “I would absolutely love to do a project like this in the future. I really enjoyed the process and the outcome at the end of the eight-week experience!”

The Showcase is available to watch here:  https://revhs.booktix.com/view/6/92517f00656e56c6/
