Eighth Grade Prepares to Climb THE MOUNTAINTOP

In October, the eighth grade will read and discuss the play, THE MOUNTAINTOP, in preparation for their trip to New York City on November 9th to attend a performance of THE MOUNTAINTOP starring Mr. Samuel L. Jackson and Ms. Angela Bassett.  The play, written by playwright Katori Hall, is set entirely in room 306 of the Lorraine Motel, and it imagines the thoughts, fears, distractions, and concerns occupying Martin Luther King, Jr. on the eve of his assassination in 1968.
