Josh Davis - On the evening of Thursday October 22 students at Matthew Halton High School presented the play they had written and work-shopped for Experiential Week, Masquerade Madness: A Mermaid's Tail. Masquerade Madness was a humorous romp, featuring mythical characters and set in High School. As the evening of the masquerade approaches, it is up to the de-powered Witch to prevent a jealous Mermaid from ruining the dance. The production was created and workshopped entirely by students as part of Halton’s Experiential Learning Week.

“It was phenomenal to see this happen,” he said. “Maron Coates was our guest instructor. He kind of pulled it all together. He took their ideas, and then came back and said ‘here’s your ideas, and this make sense as a play, and lets work from there'.”
