The SWCC Drama Club will be performing a one act play next Wednesday and Thursday, Nov. 14 and 15, at 7 p.m., in the Performing Arts Center theater.
This year the play is one singular comedy, written by SWCC's very own Kelly Franklin, English instructor and Drama Club sponsor. It's a hilarious romp, and a cautionary tale, of what can happen if an office holiday party goes awry.
Admission to the play will be a donation of a canned/non-perishable food item to be given to a local food pantry.
