Drama owes a lot to Grange

Letter from the community

 


To the Editor:

For the past 14 years, the Goldendale Grange has allowed Goldendale High School Drama to perform plays in the 1941 building that sits on Darland and Wilbur because the late Betty Roe (bless her) offered us that space to do plays, knowing that we had no theatre at the high school. Mary Ann Enyeart and all the other Grange people have continued to allow us this stage. (And no, the middle school is not available as there is already a full schedule there.) GHS Drama appreciates the Goldendale Grange for their continued generosity in allowing us to use this space for rehearsal and performances.

This fall's play is Woody Allen’s comedy Don’t Drink the Water, detailing the trials of American tourists in 1966 caught behind the Iron Curtain trying to escape the Russian Secret Police because they have been accused of spying. Romance, magic tricks, and rioting replete with special effects are in the offing.

A common complaint heard in Goldendale is that there is nothing to do, yet every year, Drama Club presents a comedy or two for your enjoyment and the enrichment of the students who perform for you. Come and see them at 7:30 p.m., Nov. 8, 9, 15, 16 at the Goldendale Grange. If you don’t buy a ticket, we can’t pay our bills, because we are self-supporting and operate like a business!
