The Drama Club is performing Silver Wings on Blue for its fall show Nov. 2-5 in the P1FCU Auditorium at LHS.
Silver Wings on Blue is a twist on traditional flag-waving World War II stories. It celebrates Women’s Air Force Service Pilots, also known as WASPS. This story documents the hardships and troubles that the WASPS faced. The play is written by Ariana Burns of Moscow, Idaho. The main characters include WASP (played by Kate Pernsteiner), Minkie (Dax Alexander), Helen (Jessie Riggs), Stevie (Lauren Gibbs), Grace (Maddie Gibson) and Cochran (Rachel Sheppard).
Performances are at 7 p.m. Nov. 2, 3, 4 and 5, with a matinee at 2 p.m. Nov. 5. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for students and seniors, and $1 for LHS students and staff. Children age 5 and younger can enter for free.
After Silver Wings on Blue, it will be time for the annual Christmas tour in December. The spring musical will be the Broadway classic, Guys and Dolls. To end the school year, the students write one-act plays that will be featured in May.
