You’ve reached the page for the HLS Drama Society, an officially recognized student-run organization of Harvard Law School, and producers of the HLS Parody!
Tickets now available for the virtual Fall 2020 Parody here (pwd: hlsnl)! Take a break from panicking over finals and join us for the Fall Parody: HLSNL at Home! That’s right, folks. Even in the midst of a global pandemic, we have produced a show that is comically equivalent to a normal Parody. This semester’s show is less than an hour long, so you won’t miss out on too much study time. And while tickets would normally range from $15 to $25, this year’s online tickets are only $5! Even though the administration told us, “You could totally charge full price if you wanted to.”
Law school is serious business. It turns out, however, that the people in law school sometimes relish the opportunity to be reasonably silly. No, wait; downright silly. Learning how to recognize an illegal search and seizure can be a hoot, but nine out of ten law students recommend supplementing that fun with the occasional theatrical interlude. (And the tenth student is widely known to be a kill-joy. Who is it in your section? The one interviewing candidates for their study group.) Enter: the Drama Society, and our awesome, satirical comedy musical, the Parody!
Being an audience member is loads of fun, but being involved is 18 times more fun. If you’re a classically-trained Shakespearean actor, we’d love to have you. If you’re the kid who’s been too busy for theatre since your third-grade class play, we’d love to have you too! If you act, sing, dance, tech or play instruments, we’d love to have you three! So you should join us! Or we’ll be sad.
Drama Society is unlike anything else you’ll do at law school. It’s the best friend-making, stress-relieving tool at your disposal. I suggest jumping on the bandwagon as soon as possible.
