Sayville High School Drama
Students Give Outstanding
Performances in 26 Pebbles
The play 26 Pebbles deals with the events surrounding
the December 14th school shooting in the small town of
Newtown, Connecticut. When its author, Eric Ulloa, had
fi rst heard the terrible news in 2012, he was living far
away from the small town. Many months after the tragedy,
however, he had found he was still struggling with
its impact, even as its newsworthiness peaked and fell in
the media. Ulloa decided to visit Newtown in search of
answers. After multiple trips and over “sixty interviews
with people from all walks of life within this community,”
he conceived 26 Pebbles, explaining that it “is not a play
about the death of twenty young children and six adults.
Those are just the circumstances. 26 Pebbles is the story
of hope and family and community. It is the story of the
human condition.” A drama this intense might seem too
diffi cult for high school students to perform. The range
of emotions is demanding even for seasoned adults.
Yet, the masterful performances by the Sayville players
who plumbed the depths of fear, loss, grief, anger, and
hope were extraordinary to behold. Moving scenes came
alive in their faces, their voices, and their hearts. What
audiences experienced in the intimate setting of the Little
Theatre was both heart wrenching and breathtaking.
During play rehearsals, psychological counseling provided
by Mary Gravina, LCSW, Assistant Vice President of
Counseling & Pediatric Services, Hospice Care Network
counseled the Sayville students about grief caused by
such a tragedy. She helped them identify with their characters
and yet not be overwhelmed by the traumatic re-enactments
they were being asked to perform on the stage.
It was an especially bonding experience. As the actors
learned their roles, they remembered the news reports and
media coverage of the incident. Seven and a half years
ago, many of the Sayville high school performers were
close in age to the six-year-old victims. One actor was a
six-year-old living close to Newtown at that time. She and
her family moved to Sayville several years later.
After each performance of 26 Pebbles, the actors participated
in question-and-answer sessions with audiences.
The students shared their insights about the craft of acting
and exploring their emotions, noted Newtown’s resemblance
to the Sayville community, and expressed what
they learned from the incredible true story. All agreed
what happened at Sandy Hook should not be forgotten.
They felt that choosing to perform 26 Pebbles was one
way to spread the important lessons. As a line in the play
states: “It’s all about how you ripple out and what these
vibrations can be.”
Congratulations to the Sayville High School cast, crew,
and director Doug Shaw for showcasing this courageous
story and adding to the ripple effect. And the Sayville
High School Saturday matinee, despite the snow shower,
raised $400 for Sandy Hook Promise.
