Playing the parts of sisters in Jeffersonville High School's theater productions

Two Jeff High cousins take leading roles in this weekend’s plays



Northam said she’s really excited to see how Biagi and the rest of the cast perform the show.

But Howard said “Pride and Prejudice” and “Our Town” share a challenge for students — with both shows set in the 1800s and 1900s, respectively, learning the lingo and how to speak it have been difficult.

“I think both of these have been a challenge in the language barrier because kids don’t speak this way,” Howard said. “For them to have to break that down day after day has really worn on them. For a little while, some of them didn’t know what they were saying.”

Northam said it’s nice to have the support of her theater family for both her and Biagi, but knowing their families at home both feel invested in them also helps.

“We see each other with our family and everyone was really excited about it, they all talk about with each other,” Northam said. “It’s nice to have that, all of your family interested in it and not just one part of it.”
