The Internet is a Distraction - Oh Look A Kitten

Leyden High Schools’ Manga award-winning theater program is proud to present their winter play, The Internet is a Distraction--Oh Look A Kitten, written by Ian McWethy and directed by Julio Alverez. This will be Mr. Alvarez’s directorial debut at Leyden.

“While this show reflects on the dangers of online media consumption, there is an air of warmth and creativity that has brought some much needed levity to our theater program,” said director Julio Alvarez. 

The show is a high-octane comedy that explores the rabbit hole of distraction we all go down every time we go online. The Internet is a Distraction- Oh Look A Kitten, will be performed on the West Leyden stage December 8, 9 and 10 at 7 p.m. Tickets are available now and cost $3 for adults and $2 for children. Purchase tickets in advance at or at the door.

“We have such a talented young cast of performers,” said Alvarez. “It takes a certain type of personality to want to get in front of people and act, let alone be able to do it well. It is exciting to think of what these students will do, as they have a lot to offer the Leyden community.”
