Enjoy district musicals
This weekend is your last chance to see LOHS and LHS perform their respective musicals.
Come and enjoy the talented Lake Oswego High School drama cast and crew presenting the highly entertaining, Tony Award winning musical "Chicago." LOHS will be performing the High School Edition of Chicago to ensure the production is more family friendly for all audiences.
Remaining performances are Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. and Nov. 16 at 2 p.m and 7 p.m.. Doors open 30 minutes prior to the performance. All performances will be held in the LOHS auditorium.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. Reserve your tickets now at www.eticketexpress.com/event/lohsdrama/chicago/.
The Lakeridge drama department invites you to their production of "Urinetown," a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. Performances will be held Nov. 14 at 7 p.m and Nov. 16 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. in the Lakeridge High School auditorium. Ticket prices range from $8-12. Tickets are available now at www.lrhs.tix.com/Schedule.aspx?OrgNum=2244/.
