McDonald County High School Theatre Season Opens

MCDONALD COUNTY, Mo. – The McDonald County High School theatre season is getting underway.

Today we got a sneak peek of the classes’ performance of “Pygmalion…A Comedy.”

A lot of work goes into these types of productions, and the pay-off for kids extends far past the stage, “They learn self-expression they learn how to speak in front of others and that is not. You know you don’t have to do theatre just for theatre’s sake if you do theatre you will be better in life. You will be a leader. You are going to be able to speak to people. YOu are going to make more money.” says Wyatt Hester, McDonald County Theatre teacher.
