Thunder Ridge School Play
Students from the Thunder Ridge high School presented their annual play, "You Can't Be Too Careful", last Saturday, and had to cancel their 2nd performance that was scheduled for Sunday due to the poor weather. Members of the cast and crew are shown below, along with characters. Because of the cancellation, it was decided to also live stream the event on the Thunder Ridge High School YouTube channel, or can be viewed by following the link below.
The students work very hard each year to present a play, but this year due to the weather and COVID restrictions, their audience was limited, and admission collected was hit hard. Therefore, donations are GLADLY accepted and appreciated, and can be sent to the High School.
