The GVHS Theatre Co. invites everyone to attend their production of George Herman’s “A Company of Wayward Saints” on Nov. 11-13. This comedy follows a troupe of amateur dramatists who attempt to put on “The History of Man” in a last ditch attempt to buy their way back home by gaining the patronage of a wealthy duke. But for a group of actors far too selfish, self-important and self-indulgent to work together this proves to be a challenge they may never overcome. Performances begin at 6:30 p.m. in Cardinal Hall at Grand Valley High School in Parachute. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $5/person or $3 for seniors and district staff/students with proper ID. For more information or to reserve tickets, contact Mr. Gregory at (970) 285-5705, ext. 4121.
