  I always enjoyed school plays when my two sons were in school, and I still go see a few of the area school plays every year.  One that has caught my eye because I have not seen it preformed at an area school before is The Little Mermaid At Lyman Hall, High School, Wallingford, CT. May 4 - 6, 2017. If you have not been to a school play in your area, you should try to attend one.  Not only will you be supporting your area schools, but you will also be impressed by the quality of these plays.  And who knows you may just be watching the next big TV or Movie Star.     ******************************************************************************  Info about the author: George Souto NMLS# 65149 is a Loan Originator who can assist you with all your #FHA, #CHFA, and #Conventional #mortgage n...
