Elyria City School District

The Eastern Heights Middle School (EHMS) Drama Club gives students in fifth through eighth grade real experience in theater behind the scenes and in front of audiences. But even more important are the bonds the students form as members of the tight-knit group, and the confidence and poise they exude on stage delivering complex dialogue, drawing audiences into each story. EHMS director, Charlene Hartley, has built the club up from just a few members to more than 20-strong, and it continues to grow each school year. The club kicked off its 2022-2023 season with the musical, "Aladdin Jr.," to rave reviews. They are now showing off their dramatic skills in the play, "Walk Two Moons." The production drew so much interest that Charlene had to double cast the roles to allow as many students as possible to participate in the show. We caught up with a handful of the EHMS student actors to hear all about their latest production, "Walk Two Moons." The performance takes place March 8 and 9, 7:30 p.m. at the Elyria High School Performing Arts Center. Tickets are available online here!
