This Year's Performance!

Spring brings a lot more in this region than grass turning greener and flowers beginning to pop up out of their winter sleeping spots!

At our school, each year for well over 10 years now, there is a play that has always been extremely well done, great youth performers and a fantastic director who presides over the entire production.

This year is no exception in the "great workmanship" department but it is also something entirely new too.

This year's musical was put together by two students at our school and one of the kids responsible for it just happens to be the niece of my son's girlfriend!

The name of this year's production is "Canteen" and it centers on entertainment centers of the war years with a big emphasis then on our veterans and the importance of those men and women who protect our freedoms in this land.

I have no idea whatsoever what type of equipment the Drama Club has available to use during these presentations. They may be improvising with older equipment but whatever it is they have, the people operating this stuff really do a great job and definitely deserve a lot of credit too -along with the performers -for their workmanship.

I've only missed a couple of their plays over the years but I can sure attest to never having been disappointed at any that I've been able to go see!

If you're in the vicinity of the West Branch Area High School this weekend and want to see and hear some great musical talent, go see the school play -runs Friday nite and Saturday nite too! You won't regret it, that's for sure!

I'm sad to say that I won't be in the vicinity of that school!!!!!! However, I know what you mean ... these drama groups can be wonderful. Thank Goodness we all seem to have access them in our own regions!
