Students who attend the 21st Century Drama Club preformed A Christmas Carol, adapted for a large cast of young performers by Kathryn Schultz Miller available through ArtReach Children's Theatre Plays. The third, fourth and fifth graders met after school for drama practice throughout the semester to perform Charles Dickens' holiday classic tale. The play took the audience on a journey to the past, present and future during a daytime school performance and evening public performance on December 16th. The audience applauded the casts' efforts in bringing the musical version of Ebenezer Scrooge's life and ultimate redemption in this traditional story to the Monticello Elementary stage. Dickens characters - Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, Marley's Ghost, Mr. Fezziwig, Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, Future - and a host of others brought the spirit of Christmas to the hearts of everyone involved young and old.
