Friday evening (August 26th) brought the first of two performances of Huss Stories: A Play at Huss School in Three Rivers. The second performance is set for 7 p.m. Saturday.
The play features stories from former teachers, staff, students, and community members presented in workshop format in one of the old classrooms at 1008 8th Street.
Directed by Christina Binder, a theater student at Calvin College and an intern with *culture is not optional (*cino), the production showcases stories about the building’s past, including its days as an elementary school, its closure in the 1980s, and its eventual purchase by *cino.
The play also projects visions for the property’s future as a community center and an off-campus program for college students.
Admission is free; all donations will benefit the renovation of the school.
