A pretty sweet adventure: Middle school UIL play Two Donuts


Lily DiFrank

This wonderful middle school play is about a little boy named Pepito. His grandmother had recently died, but came to him during a dream. She gave him two Guatemalan worry dolls named Modesto and Ridiculo. Who granted him three wishes. Pepito’s first wish was to go to Guatemala. Instead he got sent to Cuate-Mala. While there he went on an epic adventure to save the citizens and the magical flower.

When I asked one of the crew members what she thought about the experience she said“ I really liked working in crew… I think we all worked well together,” Anya Bird (7). This I noticed helps show how the theater community is close and like a family by the end of a production. You could tell too. They all worked seamlessly together even when not working on the production.

I also asked a cast member what they thought about being in the play. She responded with “I really enjoyed working on the play and I think everyone did a great job,” Ava Angelini (8). I could feel everyone’s spirit and love for acting and being part of the play by the end of the production. Especially when they all took a bow.

Over all the play was very entertaining, and you could tell that the students worked very hard, and had fun doing it. The next Theater production is in the spring, and is the high school UIL play called As It Is In Heaven.
