The performing arts department has many exciting plays and performances upcoming this fall.  On Nov. 1 at 7 p.m., a visiting guitar artist, Mark Palmer, gave a guitar concert open to anyone interested, and it was held in Simms Auditorium, and he was also holding a class for 6/7 guitar students that day.  From Nov. 14 to Nov. 23, Laurie Thomas, a member of the Performing Arts Department faculty, is directing The Flight of the Mind,  a play about an aviator and aviatrix finding love in the skies before the commencement of WWII.  In the play there is a parallel plane where four gamers play “Castles and Raptors,” influencing those below until the borders blur.  The Pirates of Penzance, an opera about pirates will have auditions held from Nov. 18 to Nov 20 and Nov. 25 and Nov. 26.  The fall dance program concert has yet to receive a title and date and will be held later this fall. The dance department and many others are presenting many exciting events lined up for academy students and parents.
