The Newton Senior High School Drama Department is getting everyone in the holiday spirit with a double feature fall play with “The First Thanksgiving According to Dwayne” and “The Little Town of Christmas.”
Both plays are by Pat Cook and provided by Eldridge Publishing company. The showings are scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, with “The First Thanksgiving According to Dwayne” showing first.
Following the show, the NHS Drama Department will have Santa Claus on hand for pictures for a goodwill donation that goes toward the drama department.
The play is directed by Melinda Worthington. The set is under the direction of Marvin Campbell, who is volunteering his time. Both productions involve 50 students, with 43 of them taking the stage. Nine senior class members who will be taking the stage for their final fall play production include Megan Sorenson, Kaitlyn Cope, Josie Matteson, Sam Bailey, Carley Corville, Zach Coy, Sydney Bergman, Liam Briggs and Desire Stuetelpberg.
