UPublish story by Tricia Pletcher

Norton High School Drama Department announces fall drama production and complimentary community breakfast performance.

The Norton High School Drama Department brings the wild western melodrama The Snake in the Grass to the stage on November 1,2,and 3 at 7:00pm. Norton teacher Tricia Pletcher directs the Tim Kelly play for a night of family-friendly fun. The evil Silias Snakebreath is slithering around like a snake in the grass! The dainty Dakota Melody needs the sturdy hero, Sheriff Billy Bold, to fight the villainous plans of Silias and Wild Prairie Rose. Both want power in the thriving Dakota Territory. This zany comedy will have audiences hitched to their seats as they watch a speeding train race towards the powerless heroine, bound to a railway track. Only one man can rescue her and bring justice to a booming region. Audiences will be encouraged to boo the villain, cheer the hero, and sigh at the sight of the dainty damsel! The evening will begin with a short western-style variety Olio Show that includes sing-along, dance numbers, and good, clean, old-fashioned fun. The Olio Show is directed by Norton alumnus Cody Stanley and features the music direction of Norton teacher Jennifer Blystone and choreography by Norton alumna Cori Gleason. Over 65 Norton High School students are involved in the production. A complimentary performance with free breakfast, sponsored by the Norton Women’s Club, is offered on Friday, November 2 at 9:00am. Please call the Norton High School office at 330-825-7300 for reservations for the complimentary breakfast show. Tickets for evening performances are available at the door, $6 for adults, $4 for students and seniors. For more information, call Tricia Pletcher 330-825-7300.
