The Poultney High School Drama Club presents "Up the Down Staircase" in the gymnasium. The performances will be Friday, May 7, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, May 8, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
"Up the Down Staircase" is a play based on the novel by Bel Kaufman. Set in a New York City public school, the plot line follows the trials and tribulations of an ambitious first-year English teacher, Sylvia Barett, who encounters challenges from her students, the administration, her colleagues, and herself. As any teacher can attest, teaching is much more than academic achievement.
The witty writing is sure to elicit a fun-filled evening. For further information, contact Scott Holliman, drama director, at 802-287-5861.
