The Boltfest show must go on

Second year festival overcomes obstacles

Lightridge’s theater department kicked the new year off with BoltFest, its second annual winter show. BoltFest is a festival style event that contains plays, projects, and theater-themed activities. This year’s theme was based on the woods, with set design and plots corresponding to this theme. The main event of BoltFest is the fifteen student-run plays. All performances are written, directed, and acted by students.

“It’s a chance for students to be introduced to theater,” said Jyotsna Gopianand, a sophomore actor in the production. “It gives them a chance to work on shows that are not as intimidating as a big production.”

The first night of the production began on Thursday, Jan. 18, with two more shows postponed to Jan. 26 and 27, due to inclement weather.

“Due to the delay, we went into opening night without a single tech rehearsal,” said senior Aimee Lyman, one of the directors. “Coming into opening week, there were a lot of people who forgot lines and cues.”

Regardless, Lightridge Theater managed to overcome the hardships due to the delay, and put on a successful show.

“I really enjoyed BoltFest. I thought it was super unique,” said senior Zobia Farhan, who attended the Jan. 26 show.
