Students and parents at North Rockford Middle School were treated to the stage performance of Wishful Thinking presented by the Speech and Drama Class on Wednesday, November 14, 2018. The comedy by Kenneth Preuss centers on group of teens that encounter an unusual substitute teacher and how they use her lucky rabbit’s foot to make three wishes. The wishes come true, or do they? By the end of the play, the players and the audience all learn an important lesson.
This student run program included 19 actors and four crew members that worked together on creating the set, prompting, lighting and hand properties. The one trimester elective is comprised of 7th and 8th grade students under the leadership of teacher Lori Lang.
