TR School News

Medium Rare -Thunder Ridge High School will be having their High School Play Saturday, February 16 at 7:00 pm, and Sunday, February 17 at 5:00 pm at the TR Middle School Auditorium in Agra. This year they will perform “Medium Rare” by Steve Hogue, produced by Pioneer Drama Service.

Play synopsis: Here’s an uproarious farce about a very special problem encountered by new homeowners. Harry and Bunny Polk get more than they bargain for when they move into their house: Grandma Nina, a demanding and nerve-racking old lady, has decided to stay in the house after the rest of her family sells it and moves away! The fun begins at dinner that night, when Grandma orders a medium rare burger done just the way she likes it. In the next few days, Grandma holds a meeting of her Early Birds Club at 6:00 in the morning, entertains an octogenarian friend, and almost gets Harry fired from his job.

It’s a fun filled comedy you don’t want to miss.
