Mrs. Corrine James selected Tanner Ames as the performer of this issue. Ames participates in the drama program that Lowry offers. Mrs. James listed reasons why she appointed Ames as the Performer of the Issue.

“Tanner is cooperative, creative, musical, dedicated, amazing, nice, as well as he can sing and dance,” said James.

James believes each and every student in drama deserves the Performer of the Issue because of all of their hard work and effort they have put in so far this year.

Ames was excited to find out he was going to be the Performer of the Issue.

“I was very excited when I heard that I’d be Performer of the Issue, like more excited than I should’ve been,” said Ames.

Drama is currently working on the play called ‘Grease’ and is putting in the effort to make this play extraordinary.

“So far, I really like drama. I feel like all of our cast members are going to be really close. I already feel closer to everyone. I feel like we have the talent to make the production entertaining, and with enough practice and work, I know that we can pull it off,” said Ames.

Another fellow drama student, Kinley Carlson, expressed how she feels about participating in drama this year.

“Drama is going well. I think that everyone is putting in a lot of effort into the play and it’s going to turn out great. My role in the play is Miss Lynch. I feel like it is a good role for me because I love yelling at children,” said Carlson.

Carlson was proud to see her friend receive the honor.

“I think Tanner deserves it, he has a minimal amount of lines in the play ‘grease’ that we are currently working on, but those lines he performs dramatically make a great impact in his scenes,” said Carlson.

Tyler Jenkins also had a few remarks on his views about how drama is going this year.

“Drama this year is quite fun and interesting. This is my first time doing it, so it’s like a new experience for me. Also, we are working on the play Grease, and I grew up watching Grease, I like to sing so this is a plus.” said Jenkins.

Jenkins also had something positive to say about Ames.

“I think he’s great. He helps out with all the musical aspects of the play which makes him a major asset to the drama team. He’s well appreciated and with all he does for the cast and does not go unseen,” said Jenkins.

Drama takes the stage in their play “Grease” on October 24, 25, and 26 in the auditorium.
