On March 23 and 24, Nishna Valley presented its
High School Musical. Much hard work went into the
preparation of Roger and Hammerstein's production of
' 'South Pacific. ' ' A special thanks to Drama Director,
Pat Hurley, and to Music Director, Peg Phelps-without
their tireless efforts, this production would have been
impossible . Special thank-you's are also deserved by
the various committeesand crews whose voluntary
work made this musical an event that will most surely
be remembered by all.
