Three shows start at local high schools
Gainesville High School’s drama department presents “West Side Story” starting at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Oct. 8 at the school’s Performing Arts Center, 830 Century Place, Gainesville. Tickets cost $5 and can be purchased at 6:30 on the evening of each show.

Students at a few area high schools will soon be taking audiences on three very different journeys.

At North Hall High School, the production of "Almost, Maine," gets under way today. The play tells the stories of the characters in a small town in Maine on one special evening.

Down the road at Gainesville High School, students will present the musical "West Side Story." Starting Tuesday, the show explores the rivalry of two teen gangs in the 1950s.

And at West Hall High School in Oakwood, drama students will present "Children’s Letters to God," a play adapted from a book by the same name. It tackles hard hitting questions kids have written to God, such as "Dear God, how did you know you were God?" or "Dear God, are you really invisible or is that just a trick?"
