In spite of setbacks due to recent extreme cold temperatures, Medstead Central School continues to move forward into the 2019 year. Buses have been cancelled several times in the Living Sky School District due to weather conditions. Through quick thinking and diligent rescheduling, the school’s events such as bus to swim and ski trips have been rescheduled.
While many outdoor activities are affected, the Medstead Drama Club’s famous dinner and dessert theatre continues unencumbered. The dinner theater of Feb. 3, with curtain at 5 p.m., boasted a play and food. Advance tickets for this event sold quickly.
The following evening, Feb. 4, hosted the dessert theater, also put on by the Medstead Drama Club. All proceeds of this event are reinfused into the drama club itself. The two plays, The Taming of LaRueby L.R. Karcz, and Imperfect Proposalby Lisa Perry, afforded the students an opportunity to test their range and showcase learned drama skills.
The Medstead Drama Club is an award-winning feature of the local school. The drama events provide students and community members with amusing and educational ways to get through the winter. February continues to hold a host of events including the school’s Food Fridays and ski trips, leading up to reading week, which runs from Feb. 18 to Feb. 22.
