On Friday, May 2, 10 students from Sampson Community College and Sampson Early College High School danced in a circle to “The Circle of Life” while dressed in handmade animal masks.
This was the grand opening of SCC’s first Drama Club performance, “All Around the World,” which was a musical showcase including singing, dancing, poetry reading, and even a piece on the piano. Club advisor Bruce Creech welcomed everyone, introduced the Drama Club, and even sang a song himself.
Chadwick Lewis, the Drama Club president, founded the club in January alongside the vice president, Kathie Gutierrez, in hopes that the club would continue on for years to come.
The event was held in the Robert D. Warren Student Center and was a huge success, with roughly 75 in attendance.
Members of the Drama Club include Chadwick Lewis, Kathie Gutierrez, Janna Sims, Leah Moore, Alex Gomez, Rosalee Mann, Cyndi Smith, Rosa Guzman, Nathaly Valdez, and Chris Feige.
