Letter to the editor: Proud of Pomona theater performances

Wanting a cheap date with my husband, I perused the local options and came across an ad in your newspaper from Pomona High School’s Catwalk Theater and found A Night of One Acts: #viral and Tracks. I went to their website and was pleasantly surprised how organized the site was with even the ability to purchase tickets on line like a professional venue.
We arrived for the Friday night performance and were seated in a large auditorium with a relatively small audience, guessing mostly alumni and supporting family members. It was discouraging and I was prepared to be underwhelmed. The lights went down and the first one act, Tracks began with the special effects of a train arriving at a station and the story began. It was wonderful! The student actors, none of whose names I know, did an amazing job--the concerned mother (my favorite actress), the old man, the couple, the professor, the lawyer, on and on, performed so well and the story line was so engaging.
The next play #viral rhythmically portrayed the affects of cyber-bullying followed by a prank. The story was portrayed through the eyes of the students who participated in the prank, each explaining how they weren’t responsible yet it happened. When the masked marauders representing all the eyes that saw the viral video of the bullying started to surround us in the auditorium with laughter, others around me laughed along nervously. But I wiped back tears experiencing the gravity of how the impact of seemingly harmless bullying lead to a humiliating incident. Another incredible story.
I see on the Catwalk Theater website that their spring musical, Shrek, has just finished their auditions and you can bet that we will be purchasing tickets to see what talents they bring to the stage in the spring.
So, if you are in the community and don’t have kids at Pomona High School, you know you can be thoroughly entertained at an inexpensive price.
Kudos to Catwalk Theater!
