On Thursday, Jan. 25 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School’s drama department hosted its third annual Douglas Night Live show, based off of the show “Saturday Night Live” on NBC,  showcasing students’ comedy skits that reference relatable ideas and modern topics in school and in the world.

“I was in three skits: ‘Douglas Update,’ which I wrote, ‘Girl Scouts’ and ‘School Club Hunger Games,’” junior Alex Wind said. “We prepared by writing the skits as our midterm and then selecting which scenes would be performed and who would be in them and then rehearsed.”

MSD drama plans on continuing the relatively new tradition for future years with new skits and musical performances.
