PARK CITY, Utah, May 31, 2023 (Gephardt Daily) — Park City High School drama students were joined by an almost unbelievable cast to deliver a message on drinking and driving.
“It was a shocking scene — a head-on collision involving Park City High School students,” as the Park City Police Department described the production Wednesday on social media, and shared a video of the proceedings. “But it was just a performance by drama students to discourage seniors from drinking and driving as they celebrate graduation and beyond.”
Just a performance with a wide-ranging cast rarely seen on stage, or screen, for that matter. The performing students worked with a wrecked vehicle and casualties, and were joined by Park City police and their vehicles in “hot-run” lights and siren mode.
They conducted field tests and made an arrest. Plus emergency vehicles and EMTs showed up. Even a hearse.
And the University of Utah AirMed medical helicopter.
The production concluded with a funeral presided over by a veteran officers telling crash horror stories. “Watch the video for the sobering message,” Park City police advised.
