Northview presents…'Our Town'
By By Adrienne McKenzie
Northview High School’s Senior Class of 2008 presented “Our Town” Friday and Saturday nights as their class play.
Slay said he was pleased with the performance of the seniors because the play “Our Town” is not the typical style of theater the school normally puts on. He said once the students got on stage they felt comfortable in their shoes.
NHS seniors have been practicing diligently for the play, according to Slay.
According to the program handed out at the play, “Our Town” was written by Thornton Wilder. It was originally released in 1938, which is when it won a Pulitzer Prize.
