The Dewitt Creativity Group is a united effort on behalf of the creatively-minded students at DHS to ensure continued innovation and expression in all forms.

Original Show Opens on Stage at DeWitt High School

An original stage production captures many of the concepts of the

DeWitt Creativity Group:

The show, written and directed by Jeff Croley, is based on the intrigue of asking questions. The majority of the content, which is delivered in numerous artistic short scenes, relates to issues surrounding education as well as numerous social issues (especially those dealing with students at the secondary level).

The original show entitled -- "Questions?"    Runs Feb. 10th - 13th

                         - "Those who often Question, are those who often Learn"

Below is a short press release:
Next week DeWitt High School Theatre Department presents an original "Act As If..," production with a unique blend of absurd theatre, dark humor, and artistic expression. This show deals with many  issues of education as well as social issues, especially those of young people. This production hopes to ignite conversation about the importance of creative expression. Creativity should not only be nurtured but supported and practiced on a regular basis if we want our future educational, academic, and economic culture to prosper. Minimalistic in presentation, but heavy in it's metaphorical stimulation, this show will entertain, as well as, educate. Isn't the intent of education to encourage people to ask questions, to research, to live with answers, and ask further questions as a result of those answers? This show incorporates those concepts along with philosophies of the DeWitt Creativity Group.  Following each performance there will be a talk back to encourage further discussion regarding the content, the concept, and the creative process.

Performance dates are February 10th-12th at 7pm and February 13th at 2pm. Tickets are $5 general admission --- Tickets available at the door however seating is limited. For advance ticket sales call 688-3218.
If we are serious about working together to make an economic impact in the future, schools must do a better job of working closely with business communities to provide young talented minds with opportunities where creativity can flourish.  What better way to do this than by means of innovative projects and initiatives?  There is no doubt self-expression leads to self-confidence. Creativity.., fuel for the future. Isn't about time we embrace it?

Please help to spread the word. If you'd like to set up an interview or have any other questions pertaining to the show please contact director Jeff Croley at 281-4180 or 668-3169.
