Madison County Central School has taken on another first for the school, with their inaugural drama production, Another Cinderella. The play was directed by MCCS 6th grade Science teacher, Elizabeth Hodge, who will return to the school next year to participate in another MCCS first, student drama courses.
Mrs. Hodge says she did a lot of acting during her high school years and has been exposed to many literary works that helped her cultivate an interest in writing. She believes drama allows exposure to other cultures and will give students more insight on communication and problem solving skills. Hodge wrote all of the school play’s narrations, the play’s welcome and developed the program. Students were asked to assist with costumes, props, make-up and all other aspects of the production. Hodge says she asked them “to make it their own” and that they did an excellent job with that task.
