For Immediate Release
Exeter-West Greenwich Senior High Drama Presents Sonder: A
Cabaret Story , An Original Production by EWG Senior, Michelina
Smith

About the Show:
The word ‘sonder’ means, “the realization that each passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own.” In other words, every person that you see, meet, or interact with has his or her own story. Even though you may think you know every fact about a person, it doesn’t mean you know who they are.
Join the Exeter-West Greenwich Sr. High Drama Club as they present Sonder: A Cabaret Story. Written and directed by EWG Senior Michelina Smith, Sonder challenges our tendency to judge a book by its cover. We often see the jock in high school as not having any brains, or the nerd as being a perfect goody-two-shoes. We label the mean girl as a bully and the awkward kid as a weirdo. We make automatic (and unconscious) judgments about the people around us, and we need to break the habit. This poignant and relevant piece deals with the good and the bad of navigating high school and is certainly relatable to everyone who is a teenager, was a teenager, or lives with one.
Sonder includes twelve songs, all containing high school themes, from twelve different
musicals. Unlike a traditional cabaret, it is a story with diverse characters, a plot, and multiple
conflicts. In essence, it is a musical without the traditional dancing and original music
component. This poignant piece of work is sure to spark ideas about how acceptance and
tolerance can benefit our lives and our world in the 21st century.
