What’s the Conflama?

Bullying has been the focal point of school conflict for many for years, but one ODA leader is doing more than talking. Ms. L’Tanya Evans, Academic Dean and Head of the ODA Arts Department, has selected a collection of short plays to be the principal focus of this year’s fall cabaret dessert theater.

In cabaret style seating audience members will experience a type of restaurant-like atmosphere that provides drinks, dessert, and a floor show.

On October 7th, 8th, and 10th, this year’s special event production is a show called Conflama, actors will take the stage to show just what the “conflama” is all about. Conflama is a portmanteau for the two words conflict and drama, which fits the theme of these plays perfectly.

This compilation of six, ten-minute plays all surrounding the topic bullying show the inside world of bullying which many high school teens are all too familiar with.

Juniors Izzy Eichbaum and Helena Beltrao can’t agree enough that the play most remembered will definitely be “I was There” because of its strong message and serious tone.

According to Playscripts, a resource for student theater, “Gray Area,” one of the plays in the production, is a “hilarious send-up of internet outrage.”

All of these actors can’t wait for you all to come out and support them up on stage!
