Columbia High School’s Parnassian’s Society’s fall 2010 production is Thorton Wilder’s Our Town and will be preformed this weekend and next in the high school’s Black Box Theater. The play was chosen to honor CHS English department member Carolyn Johnson who passed away in September. “One of the themes of Our Town is being mindful of the people we love and being present in the moment. When Carolyn died, all we could think about was how we didn’t know what we had until she was gone.” says Parnassian advisor and English teacher, Janet Bustrin.
The Parnassian Society was originally established as a poetry/literature club sometime around 1905. It morphed in 1927 to a drama club by a beloved CHS Social Studies teacher, Mildred Memory. During WWII, she packed the auditorium during performances and sent the proceeds to our soldiers overseas.
