FRAMINGHAM – It’s another first for the Framingham High School Drama Company.
Last year, for the first time, the Company staged a comedy for its entry in the Massachusetts Educational Theater Guild’s state drama festival. It came away with the top prize.
This year, the Company is staging a greek tragedy for the first time – Electra.
Framingham High junior Cleopatra Mavhunga has the lead role of the oldest daughter Electra.
Senior Andrew Caira is Orestes, her younger brother. Sophomore Natalia Buitta is Chrysothemis, the youngest daughter.

The shows features a cast and crew of more than 75 students in a 40-minute one-act play.
On Friday night, the Company will present a benefit performance of the Greek play written by Sophocles and adapted by Frank McGuinness.
The show features dancing and original music by Framingham High senior Jordan Ramsay.
