Vermillion High School students will be presenting a haunting Australian mystery titled Picnic At Hanging Rock next weekend in the VHS Performing Arts Center. The play is set in an all girl's boarding school at the turn of the 20th century. It tells the story of the young women's struggle with stringent institutional restrictions and their curiosity with the beautiful dangers of the Australian wilderness. It explores the delicate balance between nature and man and what can happen when extremes from both worlds come together.
Show times are 7:30 p.m. on May 11 and 12 and 2:30 p.m. on May 13.
Tickets are available at the VHS office and at the door. The cost is $4 for adults, $2 for students and senior citizens, and admission is free with a Vermillion School District activity ticket.
