East Islip High School's Drama Club wowed the community with the recent production of “Our Town,” a Thornton Wilder drama depicting life in small-town New Hampshire just after the turn of the 20th century.
Junior Samantha Connolly served as the show's stage manager. The lead actors and actresses were junior Courtney Kenyon as Emily Webb, senior Jonathan Gutierrez as George Gibbs, senior Sean Kaiser as Dr. Frank F. Gibbs, junior Alexandra Konnerth as Mrs. Julia Gibbs, senior Brandon Missig as Mr. Charles Webb and senior Megan Monaghan as Mrs. Myrtle Webb. Konnerth also designed the show's poster and playbill cover.
“We had an extraordinary sellout of both shows with a cast of high-school students who were dedicated and talented,” said Drama Club adviser Susan Jeffares. “It was wonderfully received by adults and students alike.”
