Schley County High drama class hosts a hilarious night
On Dec.  7, the annual  murder mystery, “Family Feud: The Funeral Edition.” was held in the Schley County High School lunchroom to a standing room only crowd.
It was amazing night of watching the Crompits, Brokedashians, Robbers  and Silverspoon families compete for the prize money. In addition, there were Filet Minana, Reese Withoutherspoon, and Theve Harrey as producer, director and host kept the audience laughing. Audience members River, Blu, Elmor and Ethel added some fun as well.
It took the class eight weeks to write the entertaining script and four weeks of rehearsals.
Director Pattie Wurtz thanked everyone for their gracious, overwhelming support.
The cast is already working on ideas for next year’s show to make it better than ever! See photo on page 2A.
