Shawnee delivers a modern adaptation of a Christmas classic

The students gave their all during opening night as they delivered a modern twist to a classic tale.

Shawnee High School drama students gave spectators the show of a lifetime in their production of “The Life and Times of Essie Scrooge” on Nov. 14.

Students conveyed the life of a brash, often mean, fashion designer who receives a lesson on how to show love and compassion for others. More showings of the fall play are Nov. 15 and 16. The 16th also has a 2 p.m. matinee showing. For ticket information, visit LRHSD.org/Shawnee.
