On Thursday, March 23rd, North Sevier’s Theatre team spent the day at Millard High School competing in Region 16 Drama. They ended the day with 2nd place overall and Best Play in the region. NSHS Theatre won Best Play with The Perfect Ending by B. Dwayne Craft. In this show, Mother has a meatloaf in the oven and is well on her way to having the perfect dinner party, but one thing stands in her way—the end of the world as we know it! Is that going to stop her perfect party from happening? Not at all! Like moths to a flame, the house lights are attracting all types of unexpected guests. Join her in The Perfect Ending as she juggles a grease monkey, looting neighbors, an insurance salesman, her son’s juvenile delinquent girlfriend and many other zany characters in an attempt to maintain a perfect house and to be the absolute perfect hostess, right up until the very last moment. Will the world come to an end, or will Mother get to have her perfect dinner party?
