NORTH FORK – Opening night is approaching for the 24th annual 8th Grade Play at North Fork School.
This year’s play is “Beast of the Baskervilles”, a spoof on the “Hound of the Baskervilles featuring the detective Sherlock Holmes.All 8th graders have been rehearsing and working on this production since the beginning of February, along with handling all the publicity. The cast members are busy learning their lines and blocking, while the crew is hard at work dialing in their cues for the lights, sound, curtain, and special effects.
There will also be a special appearance by the 4th and 5th graders of North Fork School, performing a selected poem, that goes with the theme of the evening.
Besides the experience of creating and performing this production, this dinner/play is a major fundraiser for the 8th Grade trip to Catalina, and their graduation, and is sponsored by the Squirrel Cage Theatre Co.
This performance will be Friday Mar. 22, in Kennedy Hall at the North Fork School. Dinner starts at 6 p.m. and the play at 7. The cost for dinner and the play is $5, and for the play only, tickets are $2.
The 8th Grade class would like to invite everyone to come out for an evening of entertainment, good food and great fun!
