The Eisenhower High School presented their annual faculty drama on Friday and Saturday, February 17th through 18th. The faculty presented three short melodramas which were titled "High Noon in the Styrofoam with timely Nick and Betty Brown. This was a Knight-time players production produced and directed by Mary Passinger and Pam Durnell. A huge thanks goes out to the faculty and administration and even some of their spouses who gave of their time to participate. They spend many personal hours in between teaching, coaching, and meetings to fit in play practice and learning lines. Of course as always, the charm of these productions is watching our principals Gary Weber and Erik Leamon steal the show with their dramatic performances, outrageous antics, or just needing to know their lines. Thank you to Kathy Bertolini, Marty Durnell, Pam Durnell, Jamie Ely, Adiranne Hunt, Anna Joncas, Erik Leamon, Jen Long, Stacey Ludwig, Mike McElhaney, Carrie Niemetz, Bob Passinger, Mary Passinger, Denise Pearson, Jeweline Rozanski, Jessica Shoemaker, Maggie Smith, Gary Weber, Cassie Gilbert, Olivia Zapel, and Patrick Zapel.
Just a reminder the 2nd Annual EMHS Knight time players Dinner Theater will take place on March 16th and 17th.
