I just wanted to comment on how wonderful the Elba Central School Drama Club did on the recent performance of  "Bye, Bye Birdie"  this past weekend.  All of the students and staff who helped or had any part in the musical did a tremendous job.  They put a lot of time and effort into the show and put on a fantastic performance.  The cast was young and had varying levels of stage experience but they were all super.  I think it was one of the best shows the ECS Drama Club has ever done.  My hats off to Mr. Will, Mrs. Case, Mr. Rath and Mr. Rombaut.  The entire cast and backstage crew should be complimented on a job VERY well done.
