Oberlin High School presented three performances of its spring play, “The Matchmaker” by Thornton Wilder, on April 21, 22, and 23. The play was co-directed by Brittnay Palermo and Ella Boyer with Maddie Thompson in the title role.

Palermo is the OHS administrative assistant and has co-directed many drama club plays.

Boyer, a student director, is a senior who plans to attend Carleton College this fall in Minnesota, likely majoring in religion and anthropology.

Thompson has been a techie for several other shows, but this was her on-stage appearance with the drama club. She has been a MAD Factory participant in the past.
