Forest Hills School Drama Club recently performed their production of “Snow White,” written by Tim Kelly with Kimberly Danforth as the director. The cast and crew performed a teaser Nov. 4-5 for the school and three more productions within a grueling two days.

Of note for this performance was the inclusive nature of the cast. Students in grades kindergarten through 12 were in the show — 33 students in all.

The following staff and community members helped make the show a success: Bill Jarvis, Airin Harmon, Betsey Refner, Deborah Woithe, Clayton Achey, Jen Padilla and Kimberly Danforth. The Live2Learn program provided snacks for the after-school practices.

Senior Ian West has been involved in drama at Forest Hills since elementary school. He has been in every one of Danforth’s productions. As he is graduating, it was the school’s last chance at watching his performances will be in April with Children’s Stage Adventures.

The Drama Club has been fundraising for a couple years to pay for the trip (along with MELMAC funds) that they will take to New York City in April. During this trip the students will attend two Broadway shows, visit NYU, and go on a theatrical bus tour, to name a few activities. Remaining funds will be used to help pay for future productions and lessen the impact on the school budget.
