This year, the Cole Middle School drama club will be putting on a production of James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl.

The drama club is made up of cast and crew. A cast is the actors that perform in a play or musical. This year, Caleb Carr stars as James, along with Jackson Morin as Ladahlord, Mia Schenenga as Ladybug, Liam Salisbury as Grasshopper, Ellye Lennon as Spider, Robert Brooks as Earthworm, Miranda Schwartz as Centipede, Ava White as Spiker, and Allie Butterfield as Sponge. There is also many other actors playing their roles in teams Brown, Gray, and Black.

The crew helps run the production by designing props and scenery, selling tickets, working the spotlights, being ushers, doing sound crew operation, photography, hair, makeup, wardrobe, and more.

Emma Chou, who has been a crew member since she was in sixth grade says, “I joined crew because I like tech stuff and engineering.” She also states that her favorite part of of crew is “working with my friends and watching the actors.”

The director, Bethany Verret, grew up in Westchester, New York, and discovered her passion for performing at age three. She began by participating in summer shows, before acting in school plays, and in high school and college she performed in Community Theatre. She has now been teaching in schools for five years.

Margaret Celico is this year’s musical director. As a soprano mezzo and widely known thespian, she is studying music education and planning a minor in musical theatre at the Community College of Rhode Island. If things go as planned, she will continue her studies at the University of Rhode Island this spring.

The Cole drama club has also performed many other productions in the years past. Last year, they put on performances of Getting to Know The Sound of Music and Disney’s Aladdin Jr.
