• The drama class at Elida High School will be showcasing a one-act play at the annual drama festival held at ENMU. Anna Campbell, Dru Sanders and Jose Muniz will be acting in the production entitled, “The Worker” by Walter Wykes. Wykes is known for his surreal and absurdist point of view and the stage setting and costumes all designed by the students reflect this outlook. The director is senior student, Sanders.
The student actors will also be attending various workshops at the university event that will include such subjects as comic improvisation, theatrical make-up, and Javanese dance. This is the third year that the drama students have performed at the festival.
