NORTH SALEM, N.Y. – North Salem Middle School’s Drama Club members put their comedy chops to the test in a production of the short “Oh, My Word!” late last month.

“It’s about a typical English hero and uses lots of puns to tell the story,” explained director and English teacher Lesley Hoagg.

This year’s feature presentation was “Drac’s Back,” which acquainted the audience with Dracula’s family, including his wife and sisters. Other characters in the story included a teacher and her students, police officers and doctors, all of whom are involved in a case of mistaken identity.

In addition to the actors, the stage crew, lighting crew and almost everyone else involved in the show were middle school students. In addition, Hoagg noted, the set was made by an eighth-grader. Sophomore and Drama Club alumna Sarah Rossi assisted with this year’s production.

“The kids worked so hard, rehearsing every day in the weeks leading up to show time,” said Hoagg.
