Another great play is performing at North: Grandma’s Best Years.

The district website describes the play thus: “When Grandma Simms leaves the farm and comes to visit her daughter and grandchildren, she bring along her ideas on how the children should be raised. What ensues is a light-hearted comedy about family dynamics.”

Thursday and Friday audiences have responded very favorably to the show. On a sadder note, this play will be the final performance for several veterans who have been mainstays on the North stage: Sammie Bonko, Mason Wold, Julia Schleicher, and many others. Congrats, seniors, and thank you for the memories!

A noteworthy performance was turned in by Clair Cardinal in the title role of Mrs. Simms (or “Grandma”). She had a lot of fun playing this major part. “It was a lot of hard work,” Clair remarks, “but it was definitely worth it.”

All are encouraged to get to this play today–literally. As we go to press, only the two Saturday April 6 performances remain, at 2 PM and 7 PM.

Come on in and enjoy Grandma’s Best Years!
