MILTON - The Nute High School Drama Club will present Lillian Hellman's "The Children's Hour" next Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. in the Nute Auditorium.

Since early March, 11 students have been rehearsing the 1930s classic, which is based on actual events that took place at a Scottish boarding school in the early 1800s.

The play is set in western Massachusetts at a girls' boarding school, where a troubled child named Mary bullies fellow classmates, breaks school rules, and then spreads a vicious rumor to save herself.

The cast features Skye Krueger, grade 12, as Mary, with her teachers, Karen Wright, played by Nikia Wight, and Martha Dobie, played by Megan Bouchard, grade 12. Nute alumnus, Damon McGlone, returns to the Nute stage to portray Dr. Joseph Cardin.

Other experienced actors include Kayla Dunton, as Lily Mortar, Holly Ohlenbusch, as Mrs. Tilford, Maya Keller as Rosalie, Mary's new roommate, and Haleigh Noseworthy plays two roles, schoolgirl Catherine and Mrs. Tilford's maid. Newcomers, Lexis George and Bianca Zajicek, play Mary's school chums; Joseph Solano will appear as the Grocery Boy.

This play is directed by Helen Brock with technical direction by Doug Decker. Tickets for the play may be purchased at the door: $5 for adults; $3 for students/seniors. This play is suitable for middle school aged students and older.
