PBHS Drama Club kicked off the 16-17 school year with a performance of Oscar Wilde’s,
The Importance of Being Earnest. Showings were located in the Kay Porter Theatre on November 4th-6th. This all-star cast brought to life a play that passes the point of entertaining and goes straight to laugh out loud comical. Even when presented with issues, the students recovered almost without pause showing skill beyond their years. A fact that was found quite impressive. Over the three showings, they had a total of 245 people in the audience. This number doubled the amount of attendees from their last play. With this talented cast and supporting crew their numbers can only go up. However, success was bittersweet for Drama Club. After his fourth year as part of the team, this was the last show for Ethan Gutterman. After the curtain was down and the cast took their bow, he was called out on stage to receive a heartfelt speech telling how much he would be missed, and how much he had done for them over the past years.
