School Skit Raises Eyebrows

By  | 

Lyons school officials will start screening entertainment for the high school's annual pre-prom dinner.
They made the decision after a couple of juniors hit a sour note with school board members with a racy skit about Adam and Eve.
The students prepared the skit "The Apple Bit'' for class. They were asked by prom sponsors to present it during the pre-prom dinner last month.
Included among complaints by board members is that the skit contained sexual innuendo that Adam might be homosexual.
Next week the school board plans to discuss the skit and a new procedure for reviewing student material.
Lyons School Superintendent Edwin Church says the students are
"top-notch,'' and didn't mean to offend anyone.
