Sophomore Jack Banasiak enjoys both working with technology and acting on a stage, so the Highland Theater Company is the perfect place for him to display his talents.

“I’m an actor in Highland Theater Company. I’ve also done spotlight/sound system for graduation last year and backstage work,” Banasiak said.

Highland Theater Company Director Matthew Domasica knows he can count on Banasiak.

“Jack is somebody I know I can rely on. He does a good job once he figures out what the job is, and he always has a good attitude,” said Domasica.

Banasiak is also willing to try new things.

“If I ask Jack to do something he hasn’t done before, he usually dives in and does his best,” said Domasica.

Although he devotes some of his time to theater, Banasiak also keeps up with his school work.

“It’s not too hard for me,” said Banasiak, “Although I stay up late doing homework after rehearsal, some nights, I sometimes can do homework when we have down time during a rehearsal.”

Students who work with Banasiak at HTC described why they enjoy working with him.

Senior Paige Fanning said, “Jack brings a lot to the table when it comes to comedy. He’s funny, so he adds a light to serious situations.”

Junior Hayden Greathouse said, “Jack brings a lot of genius to the table. He has a lot of original, out of the box ideas and a lot of natural talent.”

Fanning also said, “As someone who has assistant directed him, he presents a different type of character. I’ve never seen someone act like he does.”

Additionally, Banasiak keeps a positive attitude around his fellow castmates.

“(HTC) is an all around community, and we are always looking out for new members,” said Banasiak.
