E.M.S. will host District One Act Play Contest on December 12th


The Middle School¬†One Act Play will perform their play for the district competition on December 12th in Eustace. The plays will begin at 12:30 PM and run back to back. Each play will last approximately 40 minutes. Everyone is invited to come out and watch one or all of the plays. There is no admission charge for the district competition. The Diviners is a story of a disturbed young man and his friendship with a disenchanted preacher in southern Indiana in the early 1930’s. When the boy was young he almost drowned. The trauma and loss of his mother in the same accident has left him deathly afraid of water. The preacher, set on breaking away from a long line of Kentucky family preachers, is determined not to do what he does best. He works as a mechanic for the boy’s father. The town doesn’t have a preacher and the women try to persuade him to preach while he tries to persuade the boy to wash. When the preacher finally gets the boy in the river and is washing him, the townspeople mistake the scene for a baptism and the story ends in a tragic unexpected turn of events.

The last public performance will be on Sunday, December 13th at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for children and will be sold at the door. Bring your church, your family and your friends to see this touching story of an surprising and unexpected friendship.
