High School to perform “How the West Was Worn”


Alexa Hannahs

Gregory high school students are coming together to put on a play called How The West Was Worn by Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus. The play will be held on Thursday at 1:00 a.m. for grade 4-8. On April 29 and 30 at 7:30 p.m. the students will perform it for the community to watch at the Dixon Town Hall Theatre. Tickets will be sold at the door, and the cost is $5 for adults and $3 for students.

The play is set back in the 1800’s in a little town called Black Flatts. Two mysterious villains rob the town’s bank to buy Terry Cloth Robe’s shop. Everyone thinks that Terry robbed the bank when really she is innocent. The villains want to purchase the shop because when the railroad goes through Black Flatts, they think the little shop will be worth a lot. Will the townspeople find out the truth about the robbery, or will Terry always be in fault?

Students who are participating in the play this year are Jacey Feyereisen, Ivy Ekroth, Alyssa Fortuna, Brandi Colford, Sierra Smith, Thomas Milliam, Roger Frank II, Dane Wernke, Triv Vosika, Ashley Meyers, Shaw Winters, Ridge Oliver, Johnny Nguyen, Jorgan Remme, Mollie Schmidt, Sami Whitney, Megan Warnke, and Addy Nelson. Directors are Kayla Begeman and Christina Baldwin.

Roger Frank II said, “We’ve been working hard these past few weeks, and our directors have been really amazing by pushing us to put on a great show.”
