The Okaw Valley High School Drama Club will present “Afternoon of the Elves” at 7 p.m. May 9 and 10 in the OVHS Gym.

“Afternoon of the Elves” was adapted by Y York from the Newbury Award Honor book by Janet Taylor Lisle. The play addresses the power of imagination, the need to fit in and be popular as well as the stigma of mental illness.

Just as fourth grader, Hillary Lenox, finds herself being accepted as part of the “mighty three” with popular girls Jane and Allison, next door neighbor and outcast Sarah Kate invites her to share in the wonder of the elf village that has mysteriously appeared in the Connolly’s backyard. Hillary discovers that Sara Kate’s backyard hides not only an elf village but a terrible secret that takes on a life and horror of its own.
