Sophomore Matthew Eirich notes, “ It’s nice to finally have an Isaac’s in person this year. I haven’t gotten to experience one in person before since the last one was Wizard of Oz.” This year, the Drama department is going to perform the number “When You’re an Addams”, and they are going to compete against a multitude of schools in our area for a number of awards. Catch them at the Iconic Mishler theater in Altoona, PA on May 29th!
