The problem with Mr. Gould is he doesn't teach. Every week he have a new project and it is almost the same thing every time: wite a script, and act it out. The least he could do is teach us how to act. Also, during rehearsals for plays, he does not critque us at all. Mr. Gould has all these talented actors and he doesn't even try to focus it and make them even better. It is amazing that Mr. Gould was once a professional director.

Stage crew: Very adament about having things his way, only takes opinions from select upperclassmen. If you goof off, he'll come down hard which is good. Has some sense of humor.

Just go see the average high school play and compare it to the plays at NHS. That should tell you how he manages and directs the drama department. Wonderful!

It's great how he makes you watch the movie of the play you're performing, rather than do all that pointless directing stuff.
