“Why-o, why-o, from Dayton, O-hi-o, they looked to the sky-o” sang fourth and fifth grade students as part of the Hurffville Elementary Drama Club’s production of “WRIGHT!” The spirited musical told of the history of Orville and Wilbur Wright who went from building bicycles to crafting a glider that eventually rose 10 feet off the ground in Kitty Hawk, N.C. - 10-feet that forever changed the world. The production, under the direction of music teacher Nancy Leong, spoke to the tenacity of the inventors, brothers who dared to dream and follow their imagination.
