This is Schrupp’s first year as a director. She says, “I decided to direct because theatre needs more participants. It provides teenagers with many life skills that they can use in life.” Though Schrupp did not pick the play as director, she makes many other decisions. Along with assistant director Troy Downey and tech director Lizzy Ludwick, they choose the cast members, work on staging, costumes, and other aspects of a play.
Sarah has been a part of the theatre since she was in seventh grade, when she herself was in middle school plays. She also spent time as a young child in various christmas programs, one most prominently standing out in her mind is the year she fell off the stage. Schrupp was inducted to the Boone Thespian troupe in the fall of 2013, her freshman year. Since then, she has taken part in every play at the high school. She is also currently a junior class representative for the troop.
Outside of theater, Sarah is also secretary of the spanish club, and during the summer she plays softball. She enjoys time spent both inside of the theater and outside. She is very excited about middle school play, and anticipates a good challenge ahead of her as she attempts something she has not done before.
