It was an exciting weekend for the upper school’s production of A Ripple in the Pond. This was an original script written by Erica Davidson, theater teacher, and five USJ seniors, Amanda Holloway, Madison Perchik, Clare Robertson, Rebekah Sears and Adam Sills. The play was written about a family who experiences the ramifications of having an abusive father. The production was in junction with WRAP, Wo/Men’s Resource and Rape Assistance Program.
The purpose of the play was to bring awareness about the effects of abuse, who it happens to and how to help. So many people are unaware that abuse doesn’t just affect the person in the situation, but everyone around them, including the community. The storyline didn’t just touch on physical abuse between the father and mother, but of verbal abuse between their teenage daughter and her high school boyfriend.
This was a dramatic play that stirred up many emotions in the audience. “I was honored to help bring light to a subject that many people don’t want to talk about, or don’t think about because it doesn’t happen to them,” said Davidson. USJ wanted to go above and beyond just spreading the word about abuse and WRAP. They decided to donate all proceeds to WRAP as well as taking up donations after each performance. WRAP raised $2,100 over the weekend and the students and Davidson couldn’t be prouder.

Last night the Jr K debuted a new show, “Squirm”.
There were spiders.
One even made it up the water spout.
The sssssnakes got a little sssssassy and sssstarted a sssilly game.
But my favorite shot of the night and possibly the year, was what I like to call “The Reluctant Spider”.
He pulled it together and finished with a smile. A true professional!
