On the 19th, 20th, and 21st of October, Bullard High’s theater team presented a play called A Wrinkle in Time. Many friends, family, and people who just wanted to see the play filled the seats in the auditorium to support the actors in the play. These people were in for a good ride because the play was fantastic.  

The Bullard theatre program clearly put a lot of effort into this production. The director was absent at the time I was there, but he was there the day before. At the theater, the ticket was 8 dollars. Usually and thankfully, the audience was very respectful to the actors and the play; however, there were some blurt outs, but you’re going to find those everywhere. A majority of the people working on the play were sophomores, juniors, and seniors, but some freshmen really did a good job. Jacob Fulvio, who played the lead role Charles Wallace, is a freshman with no prior theater experience, but his acting was phenomenal and got quite a few laughs from the audience. In fact, every actor in the play got a laugh from the audience, because the play was funny. The props were mostly squares but they created a really good aesthetic for some scenes. I’d say the best set would be the graveyard set, which the main characters encounter. All the other actors were really good; there were no stutters, blunders, or mixing of lines in the entire play! That is very exceptional for a high school play and obviously a lot of time and practice was put into it. 

The main female character of A Wrinkle in Time is Meg Murry, an awkward, smart, but troubled teenager. She often is in trouble at school and is called dumb. She meets Mrs. Whatsit, a mythical woman who can read people’s thoughts. Mrs. Whatsit brings up a “tesseract”, a wrinkle between space and time. The group encounters Calvin O’Keefe, a popular boy who wants to leave his family. The main plot revolves around the Murry’s trying to find Mr. Murry, who was on a secret government assignment. They find out that Camazotz is the planet where their father is imprisoned. Mrs. Whatsit transports the kids to Camazotz using a tesseract, but then Charles Wallace is hypnotized by a great evil, IT. Meg Murry goes back to Camazotz to save her brother and with the power of love, and then they are reunited with their father and go back home. 

I was able to get an interview with the lead role, Jacob Fulvio, who played Charles Wallace.

Q: You said you have played paintball and bowling, what brought you to theater as a freshman? 

A: “My sister was actually in two plays and encouraged me to try it out.”

Q: Was making the play at a pace that you enjoyed? Was it too fast or too slow? 

A: “I feel like it was a little fast to keep up with school but long enough to memorize lines.”

Q: Were you surprised by the attendance of these plays?  

A: “I was actually expecting there to be a lot of people because of how many tickets were sold.”

Q: Do you relate with your character in any way? 

A: “My character is short and he thinks he knows everything. That’s about it.”

Q: Did you get along well with your cast members? 

A: ‘A lot of times, people wouldn’t be focused and would make it a little difficult, but overall this year’s cast was amazing.”
