Enjoy East theater production, drive-in style!

COVID isn't stopping Duluth East theater students from performing The Drowning Girls. They moved up their performances a week, in case rising COVID numbers shut down activities.

So the community rallied to get the sets, lights, decorations, and lines all ready for Wednesday night.

"It's a bit of a ghost story. It's told from the point of view of three deceased women, who also happen to be in bathtubs, and wedding dresses," shared Greg Jones, co-director. He told us they'd normally be doing a musical, but because of COVID, they switched to this spooky tale.

There are two performances, at 7pm and 9pm. "The kids are proud of the show they are going to put on. Their spirits are really high right now," Jones said. They had been doing virtual rehearsals, which were difficult.

You'll watch on a big screen in the East parking lot, with your radio tuned in for the audio.

You're being encouraged to donate $20 per car, to help the theater program.
