Knight of the Square Stage presents  - The Diviners
The good people of Zion, Indiana are searching for something to believe in. Set in rural Indiana during the Great Depression, The Diviners is a drama about a traumatized young man and his friendship with a charismatic, but backsliding preacher who drifts into this small town. The two find a common bond in this beautifully tragic story of faith, hope, and the road paved with good intentions.
$12 General Admission $10 VAPA, ASB, and Senior Citizens.  Three performances only!  Friday, January 9 and Saturday, January 10 at 7:30pm  Sunday, January 11 at 3:00pm. This production is definitely PG-13 and may not be suitable for younger audiences. Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

Pizza My Heart Fundraiser 

On January 12, 2015 Pizza My Heart on 41st Ave from 4 to 9 pm will be sponsoring a fundraiser. The money for this fundraiser will go towards a new marquee. The marquee at the street is very old, it was sponsored by the class of 1991 and it starting to fall apart. The letters often fall down and have to be taped up, plus a student has to be sent down to change the messages. Please come and support your school and hopefully we can raise some money to replace the marquee. Our thanks to Grad Nights from 2009 to 2014 who donated some money towards the marquee.
