In keeping with tradition, the SRA Drama Club will perform its entry for the Rhode Island State Drama Festival for one night only next week.

“No Rhyme, No Reason: Then and Now” will be performed on Thursday, March 9, at 7:30 pm in the Coutu Theater, and again on Saturday, March 11, at 10 am at Cranston High School West during the State Drama Festival.

The comedy takes place on graduation day for the Class of 2017, and the class reminisces about their elementary and high school years—from first day of kindergarten, to spelling bees, middle school years, to first crushes and prom dates. These memories are seen from two points of view: “Then,” taking place in 1988, and “Now” in 2017.

The play is an original story by Saint Raphael Academy students, written and performed in 1988. Current students have adapted it to a modern original that explores the differences—and similarities­—between the two decades.

“No Rhyme, No Reason: Then and Now” will be performed in the Joseph and Blanche Coutu Theater, 43 Maynard Street, Pawtucket. There is no charge for tickets, but donations are gratefully accepted.
