Drama students to perform holiday play
The drama class is preparing for it’s fall play, Closed for the Holidays,” 7 p.m. December 1 in the high school auditorium.
Written by Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus, the play follows travelers caught in the turmoil of a snowstorm. Stranded at a local community center, everyone from a teacher with a bus full of students to a Sheriff eager for criminal action is going to need a miracle to have a happy holiday.
Senior Travis McCall is taking on the role of Nolan, the fiancé of a woman who becomes hysterical around the holidays.
“This is a good character for me, because I’ve seen and dealt with crazy women,” McCall said.
Junior Brendan Dugger plays a mysterious man who is secretly an elf working for Santa.
“This character is good for me because I get to be kind of rude, which is always fun. I’ve only been in Drama for one year and am preparing by spending time everyday reading my lines.
“It’s always stressful in the last couple of weeks,” director Brendan Praeger said.
Tickets for the performance are $5 for adults and $3 for students.
