Theater gave an exciting performance at the Golden Fleece

Argo’s Theater hosted their annual Golden Fleece on October 5th, 6th and 7th. They showcased several original, student-written plays and engaging lip-singing performances. 

There was a total of 6 original plays written by Yobany Trinidad, Jalyn Russell, Jaylen Perez, Jemile Memishi, Symone Leak, and America Ginez. The plays had props and costumes, making the shows very professional. Between each play, there were enticing lip singing shows with eye-capturing lights and dancing. 

“I had a lot of fun. My crew is amazing and they really bring the characters out alive,” Hailey Soria, and actor in the Golden Fleece said. “When I was up there, it was pretty nerve-racking. But as time went on, it was really fun. It was a huge experience for me.” 

All of the actors on stage were immersed in their storylines and played their parts well. The acting was heartfelt, and the emotion was palpable. It was clear everything was well rehearsed and well thought out. 

The plays were nothing short of creative. In Jalyn Russell’s play, “The Tale of Two Bears,” two teddy bears had a boxing fight. Another awe-striking idea that occurred during the plays was in Jemile Memishi’s play, “Truthteller,” when one of the actors leaped off the stage and brought the crowd into the story.  

“It’s exciting to see her experience new things and step out of her comfort zone,” Symone Leak’s mom, Rachel Carson, said in regard to watching her daughter take part in the Golden Fleece. “It’s a wonderful experience, it gets them to express themselves and create bonds for life. It helps them to explore things they might not have known they were interested in before. The plays seem to be going really well, everyone puts their best efforts forward and takes a lot of time to make it right.”
