Article comment by: Jeff & Pam Hendricks

These young historians did a marvelous job of researching their characters, writing their essays, memorizing their scripts, and acting out the part. There was a seamless blending of language arts and social studies in their performances. Parents, grandparents, and siblings who had been the practice audience for weeks were anticipating this "opening night". The school parking lot was full, and some parents and grandparents were parking on the street, another great Gecko family turnout.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening touring the wax museum and learning interesting facts from history. A big thank you to Miss Gordon (LA & Drama Club sponsor) and Mrs. Peterman (SS) for working with their students to make history come alive. GHMS and BMHS will have some thespians coming their way in a few year!
