Reece Doppenberg is only too happy to go on stage and play a jackass.

The outgoing Grade 11 student at Langley Fundamental Middle and Secondary School said better to play one than be one.

Doppenberg admits his life could have taken a very different direction, going full bore into the teen rebellion with its apathy and disrespect.

“I swore a ton,” he said.

There was peer pressure to get involved in drugs and alcohol. It looked like the mould was set.

Then he found an opportunity to change his path in life thanks to a show about following the yellow brick road. He played the Tin Man in a school production of The Wizard of Oz and he considers the arts experience life-changing….
