The drama students at North Central High School will continue their performance of “Twelve Angry Jurors” tonight through Saturday. The show begins at 7:30 at North Central’s Performing Arts Theater.

The production is based on “Twelve Angry Men” by Reginald Rose, and the performance is directed by North Central’s language arts/drama/media productions teacher Tom Armitage.

Tickets for the show are $5 per person and $3 for North Central ASB students and senior citizens. Tickets will be available at the door.

For more information, call (509) 354-6219.

Ferris High School’s theater arts students will hold their second series of performances of “I Never Saw Another Butterfly,” the true story based on Holocaust survivor Raja Englanderova and her experiences in a Nazi concentration camp. The performance will be held at Ferris tonight through Saturday at 7 p.m.

To prepare for their moving, historical drama, the theater students had the opportunity to have Holocaust survivor Eva Lassman visit them and share her experiences in the Warsaw ghetto and the Majdanek concentration camp.

For Ferris High School students and Chase Middle School students, Lassman helped them understand, as actors, the depth of the roles they would be playing, and as students learn about the horror of the Nazis and World War II.

Tickets are $7 per person and can be purchased at the door.

For more information, call Mary Cooper, Ferris teacher and language arts/director of theatre arts at 354-6076.
