Hats off to the drama club, once again they put on an astounding show, I’m always amazed by the abundance of talent that Stoneham Drama Club constantly rolls out on that stage, and last night was no exception. I loved the set, the show was amusing, well-acted, the singing and musical numbers as well as the pit musicians were outstanding. These kids have been working extremely hard on this production and you could see the pride and satisfaction on their (dead) faces. Congratulations on a great show.
