The Diviners

This play is the story of a disturbed young man and his friendship with a disenchanted preacher in southern Indiana in the early 1930s. When the boy was young he almost drowned. This trauma, and the loss of his mother in the same accident, has left him deathly afraid of water. The preacher, set on breaking away from a long line of Kentucky family preachers, is determined not to do what he does best. He works as a mechanic for the boy’s father. The town doesn’t have a preacher and the women try to persuade him to preach – while he tries to persuade the child to wash. When the preacher finally gets the boy in the river and is washing him, the townspeople mistake the scene for a baptism. They descend on the event and, in the confusion, the boy drowns

 

The Diviners is a drama by Jim Leonard, Jr. Set in a small Indiana town in the 1930s, this gothic prairie melodrama centers on a tragedy that befalls Buddy Layman, a mentally challenged boy who is divining for water for a local farmer. Buddy is befriended by C.C. Showers, a stranger passing through the town, which is profoundly affected by both the stranger’s arrival and Buddy’s tragedy.

One Act Play

The One-Act Play Production at Arnold High School is much more than performing.  Students learn life skills such as responsibility, discipline, team work, time management and self-esteem.  What students learn can be used in any field that requires public speaking – from a classroom, to board room, to a courtroom.

Duct Tape Challenge Update

Students are starting to get into a routine because the AR points are climbing. Mr. McIntosh may still be feeling pretty safe, but we'll see. The goal this year is 3,500 points and students are at 665 points as a school.

Although class sizes and the length of books vary, many classes set their own goals as well as the school-wide goal so here is a breakdown of points earned by class:

K - 71 points
1st - 23 points
2nd - 13 points
3rd - 55 points
4th - 41 points
5th - 4 points
6th - 118 points
7th - 106 points
8th - 25 points
9th - 47 points
10th - 42 points
11th - 113 points
12th - 7 points

It will be exciting to see how colorful Mr. McIntosh is with the various duct tape if students end up reaching their school-wide goal. Happy reading!!
