The first annual Fine Arts Festival (formerly known as spring plays) will be presented by Perkins County High School students this weekend.

The public is invited to enjoy a mixture of performing and static art during the festival which is scheduled during the following times:

• Sunday, April 18, 2 p.m.

• Monday, April 19, 7 p.m.

Under the direction of Dawnell Glunz with assistance from Grant High School graduate Shae (Shiers) Rogge,  the drama department will be performing “Talent-Tastic” written by Michael Soetaert. 

The play is a blundering attempt by not-so-sane and talented high school students, their not-so-pleased drama director (played by Elisa Carlson), and their not-so-happy principal (played by Wayne Deaver) and yet promises to be very entertaining.

In preparation for upcoming district music contest, several of the high school vocal and instrumental students will be performing their contest pieces. Static art productions of the high school art department will be on display for the public to enjoy as well.

Glunz said the entire program, which brings together all aspects of arts at the school, is a replacement for what was formerly the spring plays, and promises to be fulfilling and entertaining.
