It’s that time again when our best and brightest get ready to enter the world after 12 or 13 years of public education. So often test scores are what we base much of our success on when describing the effectiveness of our schools. Of course, scores are important and worthy of discussion and concern because various snapshots of student learning do help us determine how best to serve their intellectual needs.

Small Craig troupe tests comic waters with new production

Group of six players in Craig ready to try performance based on "The Lucy Show"

Leann Dixon remembers growing up in South Carolina, the oldest of 11 children, putting on plays for her family in impressively makeshift surroundings. “We’d have all my family come and fill the living room,” she said. “And we’d even put a curtain up between the living room and the dining room.” Dixon and her family would also sew costumes, pushing the plays to a level of realism that doesn’t usually take shape in family performances. Now Dixon, who lives in Craig, is pouring some of that creativity into a tiny production called “A Comedy for Charity.” It’s based on the 1960s television program “The Lucy Show,” starring Lucille Ball, and it’s playing at 7 p.m. this Thursday through Saturday at East Elementary School.
