State releases easy peasy list of COVID-19 testing sites; asks public to test

The students of Milford High School’s Drama Club will present Aesop’s Foibles, a play that combines several well-known references to Aesop’s Fables in a humorous way that is relatable to modern viewers. The classic stories we all know and love are there—The Tortoise and the Hare, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, The Goose Who Laid the Golden Eggs, The Ant and the Grasshopper, and more—in a new and hilarious format that you haven’t quite seen before.

Director Carissa Meiklejohn wanted to do a show that appeals to younger audiences this fall because the upcoming spring musical will be more appropriate for older students and adults. Meiklejohn says, “While this is a show directed toward our younger audience members, it contains a lot of humor that will be enjoyed by all ages.” At seventy minutes long, it is the perfect theater experience for the whole family.

Meiklejohn says, “The students are having a blast rehearsing this very funny show.” Student performers include Mary Jocelyn Argo, Jacob Elliot, Jakob Faulkner, Jesus Gomez, Anna Hatfield, Alexandria Herber, Abby Lincoln, Danae Martinez, Shannon Onusko, Mystery Parsons-Villa, Ethan Reynolds, Sarah Stevenson, Bridget Ireland Stump, Teana Sturgis, Zach Stutzman, Amiere Sudler, Haley Thompson, Paige Thompson, Mariah Todd, Isabella Tyrell, and Rebecca Wisniewski.

Two public performances will be held in the Milford High School Auditorium on Friday, November 22 at 7:00 PM and Saturday, November 23 at 1:00 PM. Tickets for both performances will be available at the door. $5 for ages 2-18 years old / 60 or older. $7 for all others.
