The Nome-Beltz Drama Club is not only undertaking an ambitious project this spring, they’re taking it on the road. This weekend in Nome, the Drama Club – led by Nome Elementary School teacher Nikki Scherer – stages “A Thousand Cranes,” which tells the story of a young Japanese girl growing up in the aftermath of the atomic bomb dropping on Hiroshima. The play is being realized through the talents of Nome’s youth, as well as the generosity of a few of its non-profit organizations, the Nome Arts Council and DAWN (Drugs Aren’t Wanted in Nome), which are financing performances of “A Thousand Cranes” in White Mountain and Golovin.
