DCC Middle School Drama Prepares for Advent Celebration on December 12


This year, the students of DuBois Central Catholic Middle School Drama proudly present “An Enchanted Bookshop Christmas” at the DCC Advent Celebration. A video presentation of the elementary students singing Christmas songs will also be shared along with some holiday refreshments.  There is no cost for this event which begins at 1:00 PM on Sunday, December 12.

The middle school play is a heart-warming story about “Miss Margie” and her beloved bookshop “A Likely Story”, which both made their way to the DCC stage before in the Spring of 2019.  In this Christmas edition, we see some new characters and ideas, as the characters from her books come to life to help her track down a missing gift that was going to make Christmas a little more enchanted for all, and save the day for Miss Margie’s sister, Ellen.  It is up to the great literary characters to track down this gift, while making sure to not be seen and give away their magical existence.  It is a hilarious, touching tale that reminds us that the best gifts don’t come wrapped in pretty paper and bows.
