"That play brings back lots of memories," one grandfather said on the way home from watching the Hayfield High School production of "Camp Paradise."

Twenty-four enthusiastic teenagers had brought to life the fun of four weeks at camp. It was all there - the disappointment of the first few homesick days and nights, including the letters home wanting to leave and finally the mixed emotions of the last campfire and the realization that the camping adventures were almost over.

Along the way were the scariness of the strange night sounds, the inevitable pranks, the ghost stories and the hilarious raid.

Dori Sparks, the director, said she thought she had run into one skit that she couldn't make come to life, with its French accent. Then she discovered that Hayfield had an exchange student from Italy who speaks French - and who fit the part perfectly.

Members of the audience couldn't stop laughing for long and went home talking about what a fun evening they had spent watching the fall play.
