Crumpled Classics Coming Soon!

The middle school play students have been hard at work learning their spring play! When they first started practicing, they had each other crying from laughing so hard!

Make sure to mark your calendars for the play in March. Students will perform Crumpled Classics on Friday, March 4, at 6:00 pm, and again on Saturday, March 5, beginning at 3:00 pm in the middle school auditorium.

This year the play is Crumpled Classics written by Craig Sondaro and directed by Mrs. Taylor Bennett and Mrs. Savannah Hydorn.

"With first-year teacher Ms. Collins out sick, a quirky cadre of students take it upon themselves to pull together the school’s annual “Classics on Parade,” acting out famous stories that they studied in their literature class. The students, however, decide to make the stories relevant to today’s audiences, with hilarious results! The authors are surely rolling over in their graves and Ms. Collins is terrified of losing her job, especially when the principal calls the superintendent in the middle of the show! You’ll love the hysterics of these plays-within-a-play. Romeo and Juliet is set in a fast food place! Frankie Stein trying to assemble the perfect prom date! A second-rate theatrical agent becoming the Phantom of the Opera so he can force a good deal! A desperate Shirley Holmes and Joni Watson jump-starting a new detective agency! And teenage slacker Artie surprising his unimpressed mother with a sword he pulled from a stone! It’s a comedy treat sprinkled with outrageous takes on some very familiar characters. One easy set, simple costuming, as easy to produce as it is fun to watch!"

See you there!
