Overture---hit the lights---this is it---the night of nights!!!

And what a night it was, when the Ridge Creek Dramatic Eagles Drama Club hit the “South-of-Broadway” boards with its annual summer presentation of One-act plays this past Friday.  The Drama Club presented two hilarious and surprising plays by two masters, “While the Auto Waits” by O’Henry and “Death Knocks” by Woody Allen.  Directed by Tim Lawson, our resident theatre director, these productions featured standout performances by all of the students involved.  Starring in “While the Auto Waits’ were Corrine, Michael, Josh, and Alex, followed by Frankie and Scott bringing Woody Allen’s play to life.  These students worked diligently through the summer semester memorizing lines and stage movements and all of their efforts paid off with the audience’s enthusiastic response to their performances.  Students, Sean and Ben, participated backstage in the no less important technical support roles of set construction, set lighting, as well as moving set pieces between shows.  This Dramatic Eagles’ production was a great example of team effort and individual dedication to a goal.  All involved should be congratulated for their success.
