The Lincoln Community High School Theatre Department will
present their winter play, "Pure As the Driven Snow or The Working
Girl's Secret" by Paul Loomis, a melodrama in three acts,
Friday through Sunday
at the LCHS auditorium.

Tickets will be available at the door for the
comedy, directed by Jennifer Keith. The showtimes are Friday at 7:30
p.m., Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $6 for adults, $5 for students and
senior citizens, and $4 for children 12 and under.
The show involves the innkeepers of the Uland
Inn and their nephew, Leander, as he uncovers a plot to destroy his
family's business and his destined wife-to-be, a woman he falls in
love with at first sight. The evil villain Mortimer Frothingham vows
to ruin them all in this melodrama. Actually, it's a parody of a
melodrama, complete with the hero, the villain, the damsel in
distress, the bumbling buffoons and laughter.
The cast includes seniors Karolyn White, Ben
Conrady, Jessica Sutton, Alexandra Williams, Cody Follis, Todd
Schumacher and Kaylyn Engelhardt; sophomores Kathryn Langdon, Stephen Oney, Trevor Arrington, Mary Delgado, Abby Parmenter
Brumfield; and freshmen Selena Matson and Sara Buchanan.
In guest roles are Greg Harmon, Ryan Brown,
Michael Halpin, Victoria Haferkamp and Felicia Jackson, among
