SHS Drama in the News: Barbara Gensler and AIDA

May 16, 2012

Just a note to share some fun online links to interviews about Shorewood High School's Drama Department that aired yesterday. Thought you might get a kick out of 'em.
Please share with those who may be interested!

Mitch Teich from 89.7 Lake Effect, a WUWM local NPR show, interviewed Director Barbara Gensler and a few cast members (Glenn Helme, Lydia Hartlaub, Simon Earle, Anne Guadagnino) during the rehearsal for the current show, AIDA, which runs this Thursday 5/17, Friday 5/18 and Saturday 5/19.
Tickets are still available! Book online, or come to the box office 3:30-6pm any day this week(414-963-6940).
