Emma Paulhus goes BIG Time!

Emma Paulhus' play, Grandma and Technology, is one of four winners of Trinity Rep's Write Here Write Now play writing contest. Her play will be performed at 7:00 on May 7 at Trinity Rep.  Emma is a member of the DRRHS Theatre Company. She wrote her play for a project in the Advanced Theatre class. 
Congratulations Emma!!

DR Drama. Check this out!!!!

Trinity Rep's seventh annual playwriting competition for New England High School students, WRITE HERE! WRITE NOW! announces this year's winning playwrights: Kate Fitzgerald (Lincoln School, Providence), Jonathan Baron (La Salle Academy, Providence), James Roberts (Putney School, Putney, VT and Emma Paulhus (Dighton Rehoboth Regional High School, MA) Each award-winning student will have their ten-minute play presented by professional actors as a staged reading at Trinity Rep on May 7, 2018 at 7 pm, a free event open to the public.

WRITE HERE! WRITE NOW! is presented each year as part of the "Beyond Trinity Rep" Community Education movement at the organization. Creative writing, English, and theater teachers are asked by Trinity Rep's education department to assign a ten-minute play as a part of their classroom curriculum. All completed plays are then submitted - free of charge - to the WRTIE HERE! WRITE NOW! competition. Scripts are adjudicated through a blind evaluation process by Trinity Rep's education, artistic, and literary staff. Each year, four winners are selected with at least one winner from a Providence, RI high school. In addition to seeing their plays performed on stage, winners also receive a scholarship towards any Trinity Rep Young Actors Studio afterschool class and 20 free tickets to a Project Discovery student matinee performance during the 2018-2019 season for their school. More information on Trinity Rep's education programs or the WRITE HERE! WRITE NOW! competition can be found at: trinityrep.com/whwn

This year's four winning plays range from utterly hilarious to powerfully contemplative. "We are blown away each year when we give space and voice to the next generation of theater artists." says Matthew Tibbs, school partnerships manager and teaching artist at Trinity Rep. "This year proves to be no exception. These plays will make you laugh, think, and hopefully you'll learn a little something when the stage reveals characters both personal and profound. I encourage you to come and support this new body of work and their creators as they bravely add their voices to the public forum."

Trinity Rep's director of education, Jordan Butterfield, adds, "It is refreshing and invigorating to hear young voices express their perspectives. This year's winners are witty, beautifully descriptive and they capture vibrant moments of human existence."

Kate Fitzgerald studies at the Lincoln School in Providence, Rhode Island. Her play, 62 Moons, focuses on the relationships that we have in high school and how we can hide who we truly are.

The Case of the Stolen Sandwich by Jonathan Baron from LaSalle Academy in Providence, Rhode Island is a hilarious look at a detective story gone wrong. This story truly proves that the nose knows.

James Roberts from Putney School in Putney, Vermont writes the beautifully poignant Rattlesnake about growing up and coming out as transgender in this world.

Grandma and Technology by Emma Paulhus from Dighton Rehoboth Regional High School in Rehoboth, MA focuses on teaching how to use technology to older generations - though, they might know more than they let on.

This year's honorable mentions go to Boys. Period. by Catherine Giorgetti (Framingham High School, MA) and Accidental Burial by Rachel Fickes (St. Johnsbury Academy, St. Johnsbury, VT).

DR Softball just Rollin along.

Dighton-Rehoboth senior Mia Iodice fired a one-hitter at the Cardinals and undefeated Dighton-Rehoboth posted a 5-0 South Coast Conference softball win.

SWANSEA – Maybe next time.

Case High was overmatched, plain and simple, on Friday at Brown School. Dighton-Rehoboth senior Mia Iodice fired a one-hitter at the Cardinals and undefeated Dighton-Rehoboth posted a 5-0 South Coast Conference softball win.

Iodice, who no-hit Bourne in her season pitching debut, flirted with a yet another no-hitter before Case’s Fallon Marchand narrowly legged out a two-out bunt single in the sixth inning. Iodice finished with 13 strikeouts and one walk.

“That’s the best pitcher we’ve seen all year,” Case coach Michaela Goncalves said. “Not having been outside a lot and we don’t have cages inside, we don’t get to see a lot of live (pitching) and we don’t want to fatigue our pitchers, either. We have a small pitching staff. So it’s hard to get the girls a lot of live at-bats.

“She’s a great pitcher. She has speed. She has movement. I think we battled hard. I don’t think we ever looked defeated at the plate. I think we looked hungry. But again, without all the experience we would need at this point to face a pitcher like that, she just did a great job overpowering our hitters.”

Allison Ainley, D-R’s No. 3 batter, went 4-for-4 with a home run, a solo rocket making it 2-0 in the fifth inning. The Falcons (9 hits, 8 left on base) added two more runs in the sixth and another in the seventh against Case’s complete-game pitcher Aubrey Carpenter.

Leadoff batter Calli Pratt was 2-for-4 with a run scored. Bailey Rassol, Lexi Lovell and Sienna Kulpa each lifted a sacrifice fly.

Iodice (bound for the University of New Haven) and co-ace Emily Reid (bound for University of Maine) form an extraordinarily formidable D-R pitching staff.

“Since I started coaching here with Dave Driscoll yearsand years ago, D-R has been blessed to have great pitchers,” Kulpa said. “I’m blessed the last couple of years to have two fantastic pitchers, not just one, two solid, solid pitchers. Right now we’re pretty much on an alternate basis and I’m going to keep it there for now.”

Though guilty of three errors, Case (2-2 overall and SCC) turned two double plays, including a 5-3-2 for an inning-ending out at home plate in the third with the score 1-0. D-R had opened the scoring in the first inning.

“Hats off to Case,” Kulpa said. “That team is solid defensively.”

D-R made two errors. In both instances, catcher Ainley promptly threw out the runner trying to steal second base.

Ainley’s line-drive home run took next to no time to clear the fence in left field. “She’s in the three hole because she can drive the ball,” Kulpa said.
