Winter Drama Department production:
The St. Charles Drama Department is proud
to announce it will present the Columbus and Central Ohio premiere of Elephant’s Graveyard by George Brant. The drama will be presented February 23, 24 & 25 at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, February 26 at 3:00 p.m. in the Campus Theatre. Adult tickets are $10 each, and student tickets are $5 each. Reservations may be placed by calling the school's main office at 614/252-6714 between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Elephant’s Graveyard is the true tale of the tragic collision of a struggling circus and a tiny town in
Tennessee, which resulted in the only known lynching of an elephant. Set in September of
1916, the play combines historical fact and legend, exploring the deep-seated American craving for spectacle, violence, and revenge.
