Windermere Preparatory School is proud to support one of its high-school juniors, Emma Lawrence, as she produces her first play. 

Lawrence has been a Windermere Prep student since eighth grade, with passions in theater and writing. With the start of the new year, she has decided to take on the IB diploma program, which will include IB Theater Arts at the higher level. In her theater experience with Windermere Prep she has had multiple roles, with the most recent being Truvy in “Steel Magnolias.” 

Now, Lawrence has taken her talents to a new level by writing, casting and directing her own play, titled “Young Women.” The play depicts the struggles that young girls in the 21st century have to face, from high school to social media. 

The play will be shown at the Orlando Shakespeare Theater at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20. Tickets are $15 for regular seating and $20 for VIP seating. All proceeds will be donated to Harbor House.
