"Actually, it's a movie, something people would readily know. 1 also wanted to pick something the kids have an interest in. They know the movie." A lot of work has taken place to create medieval sets and costum- ing, Brown said. "WCre going to be using the full auditorium." Brown said. The play will include the flying cow and other special effects adapted to the stage. The high school will present the movie script verbatim, Brown said. There isn't a stage version of the story, so the students are work- ing directly from the movie script. "They were pretty happy about it," Brown said. Rehearsals have been chal- lenging, with some cast members involved in track and field and the Forestry Club. Brown said. but the students are doing well with their lines. "The one thing with picking something like this. a lot of them know.their lines from the movie." Brown said.

Now that we're into it. I really believe this is the best play for the group of actors we have this year." One of the biggest challenges has been staging the play, she said. but that's all been worked out. "I think our club has worked extremely hard on this one specific play," said Wymetalek. who has been involved in two other plays, and thinks this is the best. She hopes it attracts a big crowd and urges community mem- bers to come out and see it. "The Holy Grail" is a British comedy released in 1975. It was written and performed by the Mon- ty Python comedy group, including John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Mi- chael Palin, Eric Idle and Graham Chapman. The story recounts the leg- end of King Arthur and his search for the Holy Grail. Joined by the Knights of the Round Table, Arthur encounters a variety of adventures.
