HS Drama Department Presents ‘The Breakfast Club’

North Salem High School’s Drama Department will kick off the holiday season with an adaptation of the iconic John Hughes 1980s drama “The Breakfast Club.” The play follows five students who report for all-day detention on a Saturday at Shermer High School in Shermer, Illinois. While not complete strangers, each of them represents a different clique – “a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal.”

The students pass the hours by talking, arguing and causing a bit of mischief. Despite their differences in social status, the group begins to break down the stereotypical barriers and form friendships as the day progresses, realizing that even with their differences they face similar pressures and complications in their lives. 

The talented ensemble cast brings the 1980s back with fresh vitality and enthusiasm under the direction of Jennifer Molloy. For online tickets and more information, please visit:

“The Breakfast Club” will be presented in the MS/HS auditorium on Friday, Dec. 8 and Saturday, Dec. 9 at 7:30 p.m.



Student Council Rallies for Hurricane Relief


North Salem High School students were devastated to hear the news of the hurricanes that hit Florida, Puerto Rico and Texas and decided to help.

After a vote, the Student Council chose to hold a drive for school supplies and went on to officially adopt the Port Arthur schools in Texas.

In just two weeks, the school community had donated enough to fill 33 boxes. Student Council members categorized the supplies and packed them to send to Texas.

The council soon received a heartwarming email from Ms. Summers, a middle school teacher in the Port Arthur Independent School District, which read:

“Good Morning,
I received the supplies yesterday afternoon and I cannot thank you and your community enough! What a blessing all of you are. The secretary was shocked to have received such generosity! You are such an amazing group of people to help in such a big way. I cannot say thank you enough!! Hope all is going well with your school year!”


Seventh-Graders Enjoy, Critique Theater


Seventh-grade students enjoyed a matinee performance of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” on Broadway on Nov. 16.

“The class had a wonderful experience on the Great White Way,” said middle school Drama Club moderator Lesley Hoagg.

Students unanimously expressed their enthusiasm for the production that day, but will provide more in-depth analyses as they begin to write play reviews in their English classes.
