The “Kamiah Characters,” comprised of Kamiah High School students, returns to the stage this week performing a comedic play called Let’s Hang Him and Read the Will by Pat Cook. The play, directed by teachers Jody Dow and Taylie Hopkins, includes a large group of 20 students who have practiced intently since October. Dow describes the play as “soap opera, parody, dark comedy, murder mystery.” It sounds like fun to me! Hopkins and Dow teamed up to revive the high school drama program with their first murder mystery last spring. It’s wonderful to see these two fun, enthusiastic teachers offering students a creative outlet and some midwinter entertainment for the rest of us.January 10, 2018 6 a.m. read more..
