The minute the lights blink and people start to sit down and as the stage curtains are pulled to the side,the first South County school play starts. An Absolute Turkey, a fitting title for a play built around the thought of young women who thinks that her husband is cheating on her, so she goes out and cheats on him while trying to find out if he was cheating in the first place.
This is the first play since South County separated into a high school and no longer a secondary school. The play was open for all high school students to audition for, but mainly the older students were chosen for the roles. The play is showing on Nov 8-10 with the shows starting at 7:30 p.m. and ending at 9:30 p.m. don’t miss out on this chance to see the first play of the year.
