DOUBLE SPRINGS - The Winston County High School Drama Club has achieved many feats in its short history, but the one they have now undertaken may be their biggest yet.

The drama club has written an original production that will be performed May 2-4 , at 7 p.m., at the Rock Family Worship Center on Highway 278 East in Double Springs. The play, titled “A Typical Day in Alabama,” is set in Winston County on a spring day when a severe weather outbreak is expected. While place names have been changed, they will be easy to figure out. The play is comedic, with dramatic elements and even some musical numbers.

“The local meteorologist, Eric Bessemer, aka James Spann, has predicted a long line of storms with extremely long-tracking tornadoes in the northwest part of the state. So many friends, teenagers, a homeless guy and even an out-of-town veteran from the War on Terrorism in Afghanistan seek shelter at the new freshly built storm shelter in the middle of town located adjacent to Katherine Newberry’s house and hairdressing boutique," Paula Harris, Winston County High School Media Specialist and drama club adviser, said.

Harris is inviting students from all county schools to the Thursday and Friday performances, and the play will be available for the public to view Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Tickets are $3 and are available from any drama club member, at the WCHS library from Harris or at Lilly Abigail's in Double Springs.
