Highland Mid-Kids Radio Club Interviews Drama Club

Allegheny Mountain radio’s newest news reporters, the Highland Mid-Kids Radio Club, went in search of more information about the Highland Drama Club’s upcoming event.

“Hi, my name is Breanna, I’m from the Highland Mid-Kids Radio Club. I will be interviewing Erin Brendel.

“How long have you been in Drama Club?”

“I did Drama Club about four years ago, for one year, but then I had to take some time off, and try some different clubs. But this year is my first year that I hope to do it all through high school now.”

“Hi, my name is Mackensi – I’m from the Highland Mid-Kids Radio Club. Why do you like Drama Club?”

“Drama Club is tons of fun, because we get to work on all the set design, and all the painting. And we just get to act and have fun with our friends. And there are really cute skits that we get to do too.”

“Speaking of skits, can you tell us about the upcoming play?”

“The Highland Drama Club will be performing a Christmas show called ‘Ho Ho Ho – The Santa Claus Chronicles’ by Pat Cook on Tuesday, December 18th at 7:00 pm in the high school cafeteria. It’s a cute little skit about everything that happens in the North Pole a few days before Christmas.”

“This is Mackensi, and I’m now speaking with Ms. Melody Moats. Can you tell us how the Drama Club started?”

“I would be glad to. Drama Club started with myself as the coach, about four years ago. We had a group of interested students in middle school, and now four years later, I think we have 13 members – it’s growing! Some folks like to work backstage, others prefer to be onstage, and we all work really well together, and have a good time.”

“Thank you Ms. Moats. This has been Breanna and Mackensi for the Highland Mid-Kids Radio Club and Allegheny Mountain Radio.”
