The drama club, headed by Steven Defendini, portrayed the film exquisitely. The props are made with recycled materials all around the town. Steven Defendini’s wife also quoted that her husband scouts the city for garbage so he can teach students how to makes something out of nothing. The innovative way of constructing materials out of nothing was brought to the table on the play.

Though some have been skeptical on how the play was going to be enacted. Since the drama club never did have the chance to put up a fund campaign. They resort on their ingenuity.
