LATHROP – It’s being called the Spartan Arts Invasion. It’s free and it’s open to the public.
This is the annual event showcasing the multi-media artistic talents of the students at Lathrop High School. The date is Thursday, April 4, and the time is 5 to 7 p.m.
The evening of art immersion will have two venues – the school library where the art show will be on display, and the Performing Arts Building where live performances featuring the Advanced Band, Choir, and Theater classes will take place.
Some 180 students in the Art and Digital Photo class taught by Cassidee Dermond and Kellie MacKinnon are participating in the art show.
“Only the best are displayed,” said Dianna Puett, the Spartans’ drama teacher.
On stage that evening in the Performing Arts Building to serenade students and visitors alike are 30 to 50 students in Advanced Choir and 50 Band students.
In addition, 15 to 20 of Puett’s Advanced Theater students will be giving an audio-visual foretaste of their upcoming “Guys and Dolls” with the show schedules set for April 18, 19, 26, 27, and 28.
