Heritage Middle School Presents 'Our Town'

This treasured American drama explores the lives of people living in a small, quintessentially American town. Teenagers George and Emily meet, fall in love, marry -- and suffer the slings and arrows of everyday life.

“It is an ambitious undertaking for a middle school, but our kids are up to it,” Russoniello said. “The kids have been rehearsing long and hard and I know they are going to be spectacular."
