SHERMAN - The Sherman Drama Club will present two short comedies March 16 and March 17 at 7 p.m. in the John Butler Auditorium.
Opening the evening will be "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" by Joseph McDonough. This is a regional premier of Mark Twain's classic and first short story. The story surrounds a schemer and braggart named Jim Smiley who decides to make his fortune by entering his frog in the local contest. Frogs will be jumping as the Sherman students re-enact the annual Calaveras County Jumping Contest.
After a short intermission, Sherman actors will present "Going To School" by Ed Monk. It's going to be a fun day as Nick goes off to college for the first time with his exasperating and sometimes ridiculous family.
Members of the Sherman Drama Club prepare for an adventure in their car during rehearsals for two one-act plays scheduled for March 16 and 17. The cast includes, in front, Kevin Gleason. In the front seat, from left to right, are: Lena Young; Alexandria Anderson; and Jordan Boland. In the middle row, from left to right, are: Rebekah Anderson; and Jessica Morton. In the back row, from left to right, are: Cadi Hannold; Jacob Toy; and Abby Kuhn.
