SOUTH WHITLEY – Whitko Jr./Sr. High School is presenting the play “Our Miss Brooks, A Comedy In Three Acts” at 7 p.m. this weekend in the high school auditorium.

Miss Brooks, played by Jayda Gregory, has plenty of teacher troubles and her “escape” is in dreaming about her vacation.

She has travel folders on several Caribbean cruises, which she discusses with the athletic coach (Luke Rhoades), who owns his own little sailboat.

Miss Brooks suddenly sees that perhaps he’s “the man” for her. She’s glad she isn’t putting on the school play this year so she won’t have to fight him for use of the gym.

Then the ax falls.

The play is thrust upon her. A battle royale develops.

The coach’s star athlete, Ted, (Bastien Love) gives up the team to play the leading boy’s part.

The daughter of the sdchool board president (Jessica Ness) is determined to play oppposite him, but she reads her lines so poorly that Mis Brooks gives the role to an attractive nobody (Alayna Dreps) with real talent.

The play begins each night at 7 p.m. Tickets are $7 for adults, and students are $5.
