The Scraggy Drama Club at the Edna Louise Spear Elementary school recently performed an original show about a family who has forgotten the real meaning behind Thanksgiving.

The show, “DrumStyx…or Plymouth Rocks! The Story of the First Thanksgiving,” was run under the direction of co-advisers Mary LaSita and Loraine Serabian. Together, Serabian and LaSita were able to direct over 30 students to reenact struggles encountered by Pilgrims during their voyage to America in the 1600s.

“The students learned about the many aspects of putting on a musical production, including auditioning, memorizing lines, learning choreography and performing in front of an audience of their peers,” said LaSita on the districts website. “Scraggy Drama Club president Emily Hearney, choreographer Tammy Serabian and sound adviser Tom Serabian were also integral in making this such a successful experience.”

This performance marked the Scraggy Drama Club's eight show.
