PECMS DREAM drama team competes

The Prince Edward County Middle School Drama Team treated students and staff to a sneak peak of the one-act play, “Forever Friends,” that they performed at the Southside Regional Forensic Competition at Lunenburg Middle School on March 19. They competed against nine other schools to vie for a spot in the winner’s circle. It was PECMS’ fourth time to compete; they placed second the first year and first the second year.

“Forever Friends,” by Rayeann Longwell, is about a group of girls whose closest friend moved away. The remaining four members of the Forever Friends Friendship Group have an opening and begin the interview process, hoping to find their next best friend. While the others are bringing wealth, popularity, and materialism to the table, Felicia and Tracy bring something more: giving of themselves. In the end, Tracy and Felicia realize they may not want to be part of such an “elite” group after all.  

“The actresses give lots of energy, fun, and a little sass to the stage,” a spokesperson said.
