    Hyannis, December 12, 2016:
    • The Drama Club is proud to present Deborah Brevoort's beautifully written and powerful play "The Women of Lockerbie." There’s still time to catch this amazing production! There are shows on December 14th, 15th, 16th & 17th at 7:00 PM. In addition, there will be a matinee at 2:00 PM on the 17th. General admission tickets are $10, and can be purchased online or at the door. Please see the school website for additional purchasing details. This is a play about love and kindness overcoming grief and evil, and celebrates the power of women's voices in being an agent for positive change in our world. This is a story of hope, and how we are in charge of our own thoughts, which in turn shape our existence. It is an uplifting look at how humans can change grief into love and is a timely story for us to tell and hear. The Drama Club hopes for you to join them to “complete the circle that theater truly is.”
