Lake High School Presents "Up the Down Staircase"
Lake High School (LHS) presents Bel Kaufman’s Up the Down Staircase Thursday, Oct. 19 at 7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 21 at 7 p.m., and Sunday, Oct. 22, 2017 at 3 p.m. in the LHS Performing Arts Hall.  Tickets cost $5 with general admission at the door.

Up the Down Staircase was first published as a best-selling novel in 1965, then released as a film in 1967.   It chronicles a first year teacher’s experience who questions her ability to make a difference in the lives of her students in a chaotic New York City high school.

If you are attending, arrive 15 minutes before show time to see a retro slide show and peruse photos, artifacts, and yearbooks from years gone by, many of which feature current Lake staff members who are Lake alumni.

“At last count, we have 66 staff members who once roamed our halls as students,” stated Media Specialist/Play Director Nannette Peterson.
