The students in the Grade 11/12 Theatre Production Class at Almaguin Highlands Secondary School (“AHSS”) will be featured in a docu-drama created as part of Cogeco’s YourTV Remembrance Day programming. Marking the 100 years since the Halifax harbour explosion in 1917, AHSS students researched, wrote and performed the play, “Halifax:1917”, last year.
The play was written to commemorate the 1917 disaster that occurred in the Halifax harbour, killing over 1500 people and injuring (and blinding) thousands more.
YourTV’s Jake Forsyth approached AHSS to produce a docu-drama featuring the students of today and their research, and connections to the stories of 100 years ago. YourTV of North Bay subsequently filmed a docu-drama featuring the students and their teacher Allison Green to be aired November 8th, 2018. Check your local listings for times of airing.
AHSS will hold its’ own screening on November 9th, 2018 at 7 p.m. The screen will be free and open to the public. Students and staff involved in the play and docu-drama will be on hand to share their experience.
