Without Strings

Pipestone Flyer

      On February 26, 2014, Griffiths Scott Middle School Drama Club performed an adaptation of Carlo Colladi’s classic, Pinocchio, by Patrick Rainville Dorn. Admission was $3.00 with proceeds supporting the drama program.

    The play is a modern update on the classic puppet story with clever wordplay and humor galore. Carl is an angry and lonely teenager who leaves home to work with Professor Pinecone’s marionette troupe. In this play within a play, Carl becomes Pinocchio and encounters a familiar cast of characters in his travels. Helping him navigate life’s grand decisions are The Blue Fairy, an underhanded Fox and Cat, and of course Cricket. Though he struggles along the way, Carl, in the end, makes good by saving Geppetto from doom.

    Ms. Megan Gregg and her Drama Club put on a show with high production values and superior acting that made this play sparkle with laugh out loud humor and wit. The lesson in this play was delivered in a most entertaining way. The Griffiths Scott Drama Club has much to be proud of with all of their hard work. This was definitely not the average school play. Bravo to the cast and crew!
